Celebrate–You Deserve It!

I managed to do the March SFYTT! Third one in a row! I can’t believe I remembered! Hubby got a promotion in Feb and it took me this long to make him a card, shame on me.

I used Graphic 45 Le Cirque paper because it is so masculine. Hubby took one look at the card and said, “It’s very guy.” Yep, definitely not girlie. The sentiment panel is much more obvious and intense looking IRL. The EP is called Medieval Metals and is a mix of gold, silver and copper. You can’t see that it is metallic in the photo. Yeah, you can probably tell that the little words on the Kraft paper were not my original intention. I wasn’t sure if the EP would be OK for the tiny lettering. I decided it would be fine but I accidentally grabbed another colour of EP. Nuts! And it did NOT look good. Sad smile But I think it looks OK in the end. I inked the DP the embossing is on so the embossing would show up more.

The star is cut from DP glued to thin chipboard. Then I glittered the edges with black glitter. I figured glitter was OK because circus costumes are so sparkly. And it is black. I cut the bottom panel with a large scalloped punch because I thought it looked  like a curtain held back with cords or rope.
