Spoil Yourself

April is one of those months in our family where we have a bunch of birthdays.  Today's "design of the day" was created for one of these special people.

This is a card that would work well for a man.  I used a technique that gives it a more rugged look. The Old Olive sheet of paper was torn, by tearing toward myself.  Then to make the tear stand out, I sponged the edge with Chocolate Chip ink. 

This tearing techniques works really well on scrapbook pages and because Stampin' Up! paper is colored all the way through you do not need to worry about sponging the edge, there is no white line running through the paper.

Items used on this card:
  • Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Marina Mist, and So Saffron Smooth Card Stock
  • Old Olive and Chocolate Chip Ink
  • Gold Brads and 3/8" Twill Tape
  • "Bring on the Cake" Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog

So many really unique birthday stamps!

Have a great day being creative, I will see you tomorrow!
