FOR MY BROTHER

Hi Everyone 

Today is my big brothers 50th Birthday. He has always been my idol, the person I look up to and one of the people I depend on for so many things. He is one of the most important men in my life, along with my Husband and I would not know what to do without him. So to celebrate this special milestone and show him just how much I care I made him this very special card.



Thanks to Sue Smythe and Ultimate Crafts I had just the things to make this card extra special.

I first cut a 5x7 inch card base in black and inked the edges with just a touch of silver. 
Then I cut some Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Typography Paper to cover the base, before adhereing ink the edges with a Couture Creations sponge dauber and black ink.


I then cut a strip of Ultimate Craft Obsidian Card stock and embossed it with the Couture Creations Heartsease Chain Link Emboss folder and using another sponge dauber inked the raised chain link a baby blue colour.


I then added some black corrogated cardboard and cut a square of Magnolia Lane Timeless Garden PPaper reversed and added a diecut using Magnolia Lane Timeless Die.
Then stamping some left over Pattern paper I used black ink to stamp the postcard image from the Magnolia Lane Magnolia Lace stamp set. and added it over the die cut.


I then added some metal embellishments that suited a male and some glass glitter and of course.... some Couture Creations 2mm Rhinestones to finish off. 


I hope this encourages you to not just use the very beautiful
