My brother-in-law's birthday is coming up fast, and I realized today that I didn't really have anything in my birthday card stash that would be suitable for him. I figure that humorous cards are always in style for guys, so I decided to take that route with the BIL's card. Here's how that went:
The inside of the card holds the punch line:
I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge, which is to be inspired by this photo:
There was so much to be inspired by! The colors, the blocking, the textures, the vertical elements, even the "text block" on top of the cake!
Of course, I used stamps from Paper Smooches for my card! The owl comes from the My Peeps set, and the party hat elements come from the Party Posse set. I printed the speech bubble and sentiments using MS Word on my computer. The font is called CK Buddies. I had fun adding texture to my design with two different "masculine-ish" embossing folders from DeNami Design: Thin Lines and Checkered.
I'm also playing along with the new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week the challenge is to "Emboss It." Done and done!
Thanks for the great challenges, SPARKS and Simon Says!!
And thanks for dropping by, my friends!
