Today is my husband's birthday which, of course, means I needed a card for him. Although I make pretty, romantic "I love you/appreciate all you do" cards for him through out the year, I feel like his birthday card should be more "manly" and masculine is always a challenge for me. I had an idea for a card which played off his interest in astronomy, but no matter how many times I reworked it, I just didn't like the result, so I let go of that idea and made this card instead. I should mention that he is an avid Scrabble player. I have seen a number of cards featuring pieced wedges and decided to give it a try. The papers are "Lucky," "You and Me" (A special kit which was never in a catalog), "Victory," "Cruisin," and "Typeset" combined with Bamboo and Outdoor Denim cardstock. I clipped the prongs off the brads and attached them to the star with liquid glass and then attached the star with pop up foam. I am sorry that the Milepost Shapes are on the retirement list. The sentiment is from the "Blue Ribbon" stamp set. On the whole I am happy with the this card and see it as a reminder that sometimes you have to let go of your plans and be open to something new.
Thank you for stopping by. Until next time, Hansi
