Masculine birthday card

I love this SU! medallion stamp. I have not inked it up nearly enough in my humble opinion. But I got a fabulous inspiration from obsessedwithstamping.blogspot.com and ran with it. My hubby's birthday is next week, so this is perfect timing. I love it when this happens.

Here is a lil detail shot. I used 5 or 6 different chalk ink cats eye sized pads to ink up the medallion. And I was not too terribly careful about being perfect. I was however careful to start with the lightest ink and layer on lightest to darkest to minimize cross contaminating ink pads. I embossed the medallion and the sentiment too. The buttons are faux stitched with tiny scraps of paper. I learned this time saving tip from andreawalford.com. The blue button is from a box of buttons Jas's mom gave me a while ago. She has since passed, so it warms my heart to include a touch from her on this card.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
