I made this card for my Son In Law who recently got a new job in his Degree Field. We are so proud of him!
The background on this card is paper from K&Company's Que Sera Sera Stack that was painted with a coat of Mod Podge and covered with Tim Holtz's Tissue Wrap/Composer making sure to have lots of wrinkles. Apply Tim Holtz Distress Stain Spun Sugar, Wild Honeyand Antique Linen on the wrinkled tissue. Rub Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Tea Dye around the edges and Antique Linen on the wrinkles. Using Fiskars Sure Cut Trimmer trim cream and brown cardstock for the card base. Attach Hug Snug seam binding with Scotch Pink ATG and take a smaller piece of seam binding and tie a knot. Tonic Serrated Scissors are my "go to" for trimming ribbon. For a more "manly" look add tiny staples with Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
For the sentiment I used my trusty Cricut and Gypsy along with the Don Juan Cartridge to cut kraft and red cardstock. For shimmer spray Creme de Chocolat Glimmer Mist. For sparkle apply Christmas Red Stickles. Before adhering the sentiment with Scotch Foam Mounting Tape, outline the words with Micron 005 Pigma Pen.
