Birthday Boy

I made this for my brother who is celebrating his birthday today.  When I saw the new Happy Father's Day set by ODBD I knew this masculine image would be perfect for him!!  I based it on the MTSC67 - then I realised I forgot to add the embellishment to the corner of the feature panel - ooooops!!!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Old Olive and some MME Little Boy Blue DSP.  The strip across the middle is more Vanilla punched with the EK Success Dotted Wave punch and then pierced the top.  Through the middle of that I added my MME DSP and the added a piece of natural twill ribbon.  I then stamped the tool box from Happy Father's Day and coloured it with markers and a blender pen, adding a little sponging around the top of the image.  I cut it out with Sm Circle Nesties and matted with Old Olive cut with Lg Circle Nesties and popped up on foam tape.  I finished the front with some silver brads in the top and bottom corners.
I normally don't embellish the insides of my Man Cards - but it is my little brother, so why not?!  :)  I used the same materials as the front of the card and added the sentiment from the new DAD set by ODBD.

Stamps - Happy Father's Day, Dad (ODBD)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Old Olive, MME Little Boy Blue DSP
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Lg and Sm Circle Nestabilities, Twill Ribbon, Paper Piercer, Silver Brads, EK Success Dotted Wave Border Punch, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!
