Swing!

>> Monday, June 5, 2017


Hi Everyone. My card today is a retirement card. I know my husband would like nothing more than to be swinging on the golf course when he retires and that gave me the idea for this card.

I started by stamping the silhouette male golfer onto white CS with Versafine Onyx ink. I used my Misti so I could get a good impression, heat embossed him with clear EP and then fussy cut him out.. I used my Misti again to stamp the Everything Golf background image onto the green CS using Verafine Onyx. Both of these panels were glued onto a black panel and then attached to the white card base. The Swing greeting (191D) was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink, die cut and layered onto black CS before attaching it to the main panel. Some black half pearls complete the look.

It doesn't show up in the picture, but I added some glossy accents to the green tee on the green panel. It does add some dimension in real life.

Inside I stamped the new Happiness retirement greeting (163G) and added a stamped and fussy cut blue golf tee.


Thanks for stopping by today.

blessings,
shelia
