Hi guys

Today I'm back with a quick post to share a card I made for my brother, aka 'King of the Grill', as he's celebrating his birthday today.

I'll get straight to it...

I started by stamping the barbecue and sentiment on a panel of white cardstock and coloured the image with coloured pencils.  I then masked these and inked through a stencil with Distress Inks.  I adhered some dotty paper to the card base before mounting the panel over the top.  To finish I stamped the 'brother' sentiment and heat embossed in white on some black cardstock before die cutting with its co-ordinating die.  this was then popped up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Garden Retreat - free set with Creative Stamping magazine; Clearly Besotted - My Hero (and co-ordinating die)
  • Stencil: Altenew - Warp Speed
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Ink - Carved Pumpkin, Barn Door
  • Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos
  • Patterned Paper: Doodlebug - Kraft in Color: Color
