Wayne's Day


My brother in law, Wayne, will be having a birthday next week so I figured I'd better get some type of card made pretty quick! I had made one similar to this last year and I loved it - however, I never took a picture of it or anything and just mailed it to whoever it was going to. (Now, THAT won't happen again to be sure!) When I started to make this one, I couldn't figure out how to do it like that other one. Anyway, I like this even though it is different. This DP reminds me of a shirt my husband used to have. This was very simple (and quick) to make. The alphabet is stamped using CTMH Typewriter Keys. These were stamped in various colors. and then adhered to the twill ribbon. The DP is from Daisy D's and the cardstock I used is Very Vanilla and Old Olive. The photo makes this card look about 25 feet long - it's just a 8 X 3 1/2 " card though.

Thanks for stopping by.................

Often the simple cards are the best, and this one is definitely one of them. It's perfect for a masculine card too.
