Happy Birthday Gary

By | February 5, 2014

Today’s card is for my son-in-law, Gary.  I used a digital stamp I found at Digistamp Boutique.  I would have preferred to use something from Stampin’ Up! but there wasn’t anything that had hiking in it.  I chose the hiking image because next week he and his Dad are going to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro.  What an achievement and I am so proud of him!

hatI printed out the image on Very Vanilla Card Stock using My Digital Studio.  If you look at the cap, I was able to download the Freska image from the internet and add it to the cap.  Gary is co-owner of Freska Produce in California (Ventura County).  I also used the My Digital Studio to print out the sentiment.  One of the things I love about the MDS is that you can personalize a card as much as you want to.

aGary-1The shirt and cap were colored using Real Red Classic Ink and a Blender Pen.  The backpack and shorts were colored using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and a Blender Pen. 
The background DSP is from the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper.  I embossed it with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder to give it some texture.  I also used the Envelope Liner framelits to make an matching insert for the envelope.
