My FIL's birthday card

Here's one more card for the Splitcoaststampers's Summer DT Challenge & the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge.

I made this cute easel card into a birthday card for a guy. The white circle in the middle was cut in slivers to give a little texture to the card. The background was run through a Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder. I didn't have the same color ribbon so I took some white Grosgrain ribbon and inked it up with the seagreen ink then adhered to the card. The square buttons were stamped and then heat embossed to add a little texture to them.

Cardstock: Recollections Cream & white, Martha Stewart Seagreen
Ink: Karen Foster Design Ink in Seagreen
Stamp: Happy Birthday from SU! Bear Buttons Set
Accessories: Grosgrain Ribbon, buttons, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder in Swirls, Sailboat Rub-on

Have a fab day!
Julz :p

Love all the texture :) Cool technique with the circle slivers-really gives it some motion!!
