Hello! It’s March and we’re still getting snow here, but at least the light is at the end of the tunnel and Spring will soon be here. My brother-in-law’s birthday is on St. Patrick’s day, so I like to use that theme when making a card for him. I’m not sure he’s into that, but I still go with it (he he). This year I decided to use the cute bunny rabbit from TH’s Easter Elements die.
I saw a cool and fun technique that my blog buddy, Autumn, found on Pinterest and gave it a try. Her backgrounds are amazing!! I started with a piece of the copper foil from my TH pad since I’ve used that the least. I used silver and gold EP’s. My embossing folder is by Darice.
I decided to add some Pumice Stone Distress EP here and there.
I had received the Rectangle Ornate Frame die cut as a gift from an order and decided to use it (need that die!!). I embossed with black and gold, back and forth until I was happy with it. I apologize my photos aren’t the greatest; I really need to start using the camera instead of my phone to take pics.
I used TH kraft core paper for the bunny rabbit, and his hat and bow tie are from the TH Crazy Things stamp set, stamping on paper from my stash, and adding some gold Perfect Pearls on the hat band. The plaid background paper and quote is from Authentique. My bow is uncolored seam binding. Last but not least, the “Wish” is from the Birthday side order set on kraft-core paper.
In addition to the birthday sentiment inside, I had to add some Irish wisdom for my brother-in-law 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
