Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear husband…..happy birthday to you! Monday was my dear sweet man’s 50th birthday, and on top of a few other surprises, I had just HAD to make him a special card. My husband is one of those rare men who love teddy bears…YAY! So I decided to build him a pyramage card.
Don’t forget to join me over at MFP Speedy TV this week for my Purple Passion Column!
Even though husband loves teddy bears, I wanted to find some masculine colors for his card. The different shades of creams and browns worked perfectly with the right tone of dark purple. It’s all about matching the tones! I found some scraps in my stash from Quick Quotes that worked perfectly
A pyramage card is all about cutting the same picture out over and over (smaller each time) and stacking the layers to give a 3D effect. I used a CD from Crafter’s Companion I got some time ago, to print out the photo, and then I just started cutting! I’ve done a few other pyramage cards in the past that you can see HERE and HERE if you’re interested!
Inside the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Mark’s Finest Paper’s stamp set Huge Blooms (LOVING that set!) The awesome flower and ladybug is from MFP’s Oopsy Daisy stamp set. I was going to color in the Daisy, but liked the black image stamped on the yellow Quick Quotes cardstock so much that I decided to leave it as is. Love it!
