Hi everyone...well as you can see my post today has nothing to do with St. Patrick's day although it is one of my favorites. I did how ever need to get a great card made for one of my brother -in-laws birthday. As many of you know a few weeks ago my blog showed my stenciling abilities on a cast that I have been wearing for almost three months, well I finally got rid of the encumberance lst Friday. Because I can now drive again I had about a millon errands to run. So I picked this card to show. I have this beautiful Stardream metallic paper that I used for the card and also the gold layer under the black cardstock with my stenciled image. For this card I decided to use the Moose (LG715) because my BIL loves to hunt. I first pasted the stencil with black matte paste, I love working black on black. Once this was dry I replaced the stencil back over my paste, then using the jumbo dauber and the Stamp and Stick glue pad added a light layer of glue over the pasted area. I them used my heat gun on the glued area about 30 seconds or until you can put 2 fingers on the glue and lift your card. I then added the red varigated gold leafing. Using the Happy Birthday stencil (LM 239) I decided to use Metallic Copper paste to bring out the coppery red colors in the leafing. I think my bother- in law will really enjoy this card.
Now check out the rest of the Dream Teams posts, because I saw some really great posts this week. Don't forget to come back next week to see what we come up with for our next challenge.
