Today I will show a card I made for my dear brother who had his birthday back in December. I made it with Tim Holtz products.
The idea to this card started last summer, when my brother and his girlfriend visited us in our summerhouse. One evening they showed us the movie Ace Ventura - Pet detective with Jim Carrey. They think it is a funny movie so I thought it was a good theme for his birthday card.
I started with cutting a piece of Cracked leather cardstock for the background. Inked my craft mat with Frayed burlap Distress ink, spritzed water on the ink and dipped the card, dried with a heat tool and repeated until happy with the look.
Then I sprayed it with Crooked broomstick Distress Mica spray stain. I inked the edges with Ground espresso Distress ink. I then used Distress ink in Evergreen bough and the THS149 Script stencil on random places. I also spritzed some Distress paint - Salvaged patina on the background. Then it was time for some stitched edges, which I made with my sewing machine.
I then diecut the claw marks from Sizzix die 662383. I glued some designpaper - Abandoned behind all the claw marks. Inked all the edges inside the claw marks.
I then wired some string around the card, using my Tiny attacher to fastened it.
