Knock on Wood!
This will be my brother's birthday card when he turns 26 at the end of June. He is a joiner so I knew that I wanted to incorporate some toppers in this theme. I made the base card using the Ultimate Pro by scoring the sections before cutting. I used a brown textured card for the base to give the effect of wood. The blue toppers were made using white card and a Mica Mask. I dabbed blue ink through the mask using a make-up sponge and then cut them to size.
The Woodware tool stamps were stamped in black ink and then run through the Cuttlebug with Spellbinders Labels 8. I ran the same blue ink over the edges of the toppers to tie-in with the masked toppers. The paintbrush stoppers were also stamped in black and raised up with foam pads. The Happy Birthday stamp was from a greetings selection from the Hobbycraft Store. This card could easily be adapted for Father's Day.
