Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

I’m in Summer Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes http://onlinecardclasses.com/summercardcamp2/. There are lots of techniques, design tips, color combinations and challenges. I was lucky enough to have won a spot and am loving it!

This week there was a great color combination, especially for making masculine cards, three great card sketches and then on day 2 there were so many different wonderful embossing techniques to try! Well, the wheels got turning and I came up with an idea for Scott’s birthday card (his birthday is the end of next week!) So, I want to post my card on my blog and into the gallery for the class in a timely fashion and hope that what I suspect is true  – Scott doesn’t read my blog ;-)!

You can't show this to Scott until after next Friday, the 26th!

The embossing technique that Amber Kemp-Gerstel (http://damasklove.blogspot.com/) used takes different colors of embossing powder and creates an ombre effect. I don’t have too many colors of embossing powders, so I just used different colors of inks and clear embossing powder! Still a great effect, don’t you think?

I used Close T0 My Heart cardstock in Colonial White, Crystal Blue and Cocoa, Papertrey Ink Around & About Sentiments and Big Birthday Wishes stamp sets along with CTMH Universal Backgrounds, CTMH pigment inks in Colonial White, Pear, Olive, Crystal Blue and Cocoa, Clearsnap clear embossing powder, Sakura Pigma pen, word bubble file from Silhouette by Jamie Koay and Scotch Adhesive.

Not as ground-breaking a card as I’ve done in the past, but he’s wanting a fairly low-key 50th birthday, so I’m hoping this fits the bill for him!

I hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions please feel free to post them in the comments section below and certainly any nice comments you leave will totally make my day nicer! Thanks for visiting today and remember not to share this with Scott!
