I made this using the digital kit Orange Crush by Jennifer Labre. It's for the It's In The Cards Challenge today over at ScrapMatters. You should check it out! You can snag the template for this card FREE!
You know I tend to make things that are masculine - after all, I live with my hubby and sons, so I'm surrounded by "guys". I wanted this card to work equally well for a male recipient as it would for a female. So here is how I accomplished that.
The fold-over edge is dry embossed using the Tim Holtz Bricked and Woodgrain embossing folder. I then gave it a touch of bling by spritzing it with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Antique Bronze. This little bit of sparkle plays off the glittery elements and flowers on the front of the card.
I used the epoxy sticker element to create a tab to pull the inside card from the pocket. So cute, it says "I've got a crush on you". On the inside card I left space to list 10 things that you love about the recipient.
Thanks to Amanda (abhall76) for sharing this fun template through the challenge!
