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.
