This is a card I made during the summer, I've not blogged it yet so I'll do it now :) I was asked to make a birthday card for a man turning 40 and to somehow include a pullover that is traditional to our area in the card (you can see examples of the pullover by clicking here ). In the end, I decided to take the diamond pattern and the colours from the pullover. I made the diamond patter by inking Distress Ink through a stencil. Then I coloured with my Distress Markers and fussy cut out 'Oscar' by Penny Black (the colour in the diamond pattern from the ink pad is the same as the colour from the marker I used to colour his shirt even though they look so different). I used a background stamp by Hero Arts to stamp the gray paper in the background. I stamped the sentiment with alphabet stamps by Artemio (it says, roughly translated, "Well..." on the front of the card and "Congrats Jussi" in the inside of the card) and die cut the numbers with Memory Box dies.
