Hi everyone! Welcome to The Paisley Turtle & the JUST FOR HIM VALENTINE's BLOG HOP organized by Holly @ Scrappily Ever After If this is your first visit, I am so glad to have you. Please take a minute to look around, become a follower or leave some comments! :o)
Today, my project is a fun card for any man in your life - son, husband, nephew, cousin!!! I love this little dinosaur from Pink Paislee and decided he had to go on my project.
I decided to use some awesome papers I got MONTHS ago at Hobby Lobby by My Mind's Eye. They have a lot of pink and glitter in the stack, but I think I have shown how you can use these papers even for the GUY in your life.
I stamped the Dinosaur on a piece of patterned paper with some hearts on it, and used one of those hearts as part of the dinosaur. I stamped the dinosaur in Distress Embossing Ink, used C.T.M.H. black embossing powder. Then cut him out, using pop dots to place him on the patterned paper.
Then I decided it needed a little more EDGE. So I got out my trusty Zippo Candle Lighter and lit the cardstock (that I had randomly stamped with "RAWR") on fire around the edges. I only let it burn for a second and then blew the fire out. This was SO MUCH FUN, but should only be done in a safe place (like outside)!!!!
