There’s A Nap For That!!

Sharing a birthday card that I made for my husband using Art Impressions – Lazy Boy Set – Ai4159 and Stampin’ Up – Country Club Designer Series Paper for the golf player background. I’ve taken a few pictures over the years of my hubby in this exact position and couldn’t resist this stamp when I saw it. He laughed as soon as he saw the card and said it looked just like him too. LOL!


To make the card, I began with the base of 5″ x 5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. I coloured in the backgound picture with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail onto American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder.

The card was now ready for assembly. I cut some light brown cardstock to the size of 5″ x 3.75″ and attached it directly to the base. I cut the background picture to the size of 3-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ and cut some dark brown cardstock to the size of 3-5/8″ x 3″ and used double-sided tape to attach them both together and to the base card. The flooring background with the sentiment was cut to 5″ x 1″ and attached using double-sided tape to the bottom of the card. Lastly, I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the image after fussy cutting around it and attached it to the card.
