It's going to be a short and quick post for today. We have a lot going on this weekend with family here and this weekend is Eddie Cochran weekend. Eddie Cochran was born right here in the small town of Albert Lea. He was a musician in the late 1950's and early 1960's, he was best know for his most famous hit, "Summertime Blues". There are several events planned throughout the weekend so it should be a fun one!
The card I am sharing with you today is one that I made a while back for one of my husbands co-workers. The co-worker was in the hospital and several of the employees wanted to send him their well wishes so my husband asked if I could make a card. The stamped images on the card are all from Stampscapes. I haven't used my Stampscapes stamps in a while but they are still one of my favorites and they are wonderful for making masculine cards. I used the large Oak Branch-203G stamp for the background on the light brown colored mat. For the main image I used the Oak Branch-203G, Cloud with Sun-108G, and then third one the name has come off of the wooden block so I am not sure but it looks like a pathway. All of the coloring was done with chalks and then I cut out the image using the Wizard and the Labels Two S4-162 die template from Spellbinders. The sentiment was stamped and then I also made a diecut using the Wizard and the Double Ended Tags S3-149 die template. I also added some ribbon, brads and twig punches to finish off the front of the card. For the inside of the card I added several pages, scoring them first and then adding the brads to hold them in place. This is something that is really quick and easy to do and a nice way to give more room for special messages when you have several co-worker signing a card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!! The sun is shinning here and it looks like it's going to be another beautiful day!
