Kevin's B-Day card!

I recv'd one of these from my good friend Debby and I showed it to my Kevin. 
As soon as he saw it, he said "ooh Bell, can you make me one?"
So here it is! You can find the tutorial I did on the base construction on my older posts. Thanks for looking...and thanks again Debby!

 I stamped the image on the cover but it didn't come out as dark as I wanted, so I went over it with a fine point/tip marker. I used the same marker to make the lines to look like stitches. I accented the corners with black rhinestones. I used a 1 1/4 inch binder clip that I altered to hold it closed.

Ok, I don't know why this one uploaded sideways like this but...this is what the inside looks like. I was really hard embellishing this for him...I need to challenge myself more often to do masculine projects!!! :) 

So that's it for now...thanks for stopping and for leaving a comment! I appreciate all of my "blog love"! :)


  1. Those are so awesome! Love the colors you used!

  2. Thanks Becky! His football team is the Redskins and that was the closest I could come to their colors with the pp I used.

  3. Great job- I've made these as little albums- but it works as a wonderful card too. Great masculine colors

  4. I love this card!!! This is so cool- it looks so complex! I've gotta try it out!

    Great colors, too!!


    1. Thanks Kory! You can view the tut I've done on here as a guide if you want!


I'm so happy that you've stopped by today!
