Happy 60th Birthday Dad!

Believe it or not, no stamps were used in the making of this card. The mountain, trees and moose are actually from a file I purchased on Etsy. I modified it to fit my needs and printed it out on silver glimmer paper using my laser printer. I ran it through the minc machine with black foil and used Distress Oxides to make a sun set, and I colored in the grass using a green Copic marker. Tip: print a second scene on copy paper and use that as a mask while you do your ink work!

The banner was made using a Brother P-Touch Embellish machine which allows me to print on ribbon. I fish tailed one end and stapled the other end to my card using a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. When I use ribbon on a card I often put a little double sided tape in behind it so it stays in place and this card is no exception. The whole card front is mounted onto a glossy black card base which matches the foiled scene nicely.

While this was a fun card to make, I will admit that it took most of an evening just trying to get the scene to print and foil correctly (user error and I was being way too picky about how I wanted it to look).

Supplies used:

  • Digital scene file (mine is from Fresh Cuts Studio on Etsy)
  • Smooth silver card stock suitable for laser printer
  • Black glossy card stock
  • Black foil
  • Minc foiling machine
  • Distress Oxides in pinks, yellows and blues
  • Green alcohol marker
  • Brother P-Touch Embellish with white ribbon
  • Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
