My hubby has a birthday coming up and this is the card I made for him. I like to tease him about the retired life and thought this stamp and sentiment would bring a chuckle or two! Bugaboo has the most wonderful character digital stamps and the ones of Gus ( the character I used for this card) are hilarious. I find making cards for hubby a little difficult as I cannot embellish them as I would most. He is an outdoors man, target shooter, rough carpenter, handy man well you name it and if it has a tool, a Labrador dog, camouflage or the like on it than that is him. Therefore for this card I added the old boots, some leaves, twine and screw type brads. The boots are a digital stamp from Beccy's Place and I thought they would be perfect for this card as hubby always has old boots stored somewhere:) The leaves are a Sizzix die cut from Stampin' Up, the background die cuts are Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Reverse Wonky Rectangles'.
Catch the Bug - Bugaboo: distressed /shabby chic - I distressed the edges of the wonky rectangles with the Tim Hotlz little distressed gizmo...
