Today I wanted to share a special card I made for my husband for our anniversay. This card has lots of shimmer and shine (which Aidan loved). I used Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder and the Big Shot to add texture to the Basic Black card stock. I used the champagne glasses from the Cheers to You stamp set and stamped it on shimmer paper. I colored the drinks in with a So Saffron Stampin' Write marker before adding Crystal Effects to make the drink look wet and shinny. Then I added dazzling diamonds at the top of the glasses. This piece was matted on a piece of Gold cardstock and then I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon around the paper and knotted it.

Stamping 411 challenge, I wanted to make a masculine card, perfect for father's day.

I used the stamp-a-maj to stamp this image three times side by side (for the middle image I inked the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers so I could make the golfer black while the rest of the words were Always Artichoke). Then there are lots of layers of Always Artichoke and Basic Black with Black Satin ribbon tied in a knot.
The final step to stamp the father's day greeting with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
I love how great this card turned out, very masculine.
Have a great day!

Next I added three Rhinestones and a bow tied with the Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding ribbon (so glad this color is carrying over from the last mini catalog). Lots of sparkle and ribbon that mom is sure to love. Finally "happy mother's day" is stamped at the bottom (I actually stamped it before running it through the Big Shot since I find it's easier.
Have a great week and for all you mom's Happy Mother's Day!
