Handmade Masculine Birthday Card for Creative Embellishments!

Hello there crafters! Just popping in today with a masculine birthday card I made for my dad this month using lots of Creative Embellishment goodies :-)

Here's a look:

I started my card base with my usual Tim Holtz papers as I do for almost any masculine card! I used some distress ink and the Distressed Checkered Stamp to add some accents to my background :-)

I am absolutely LOVING these Basic Alphas so I can spell out anything I like!!! I misted the chipboard black first, then used a white chalk marker to make a "grey-ish" effect.

I used one of the gears from the Steampunk Antique Bike Set to add as an accent behind my "clock"! It was misted with Lindy's and inked with distress ink for my desired effect :-)

I finished by adding some layers in the inside as well... I always go all out for my daddy ;-)

Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
