Hi all! Today I'm sharing my version of Tim Holtz's March tag. I needed to make a card for my Dad's birthday this month, so I used a bit more masculine colors and images and incorporated the design into a card using Karen Burniston's Accordion Rectangle Pop it Ups die.
I have to say, Tim's embossed texture paste technique totally blew my mind! I can't wait to try this with other stencils and embossing powders...you know how much I love my embossing powder. :) I can see so many different possibilities using this technique!
To made the card, I cut two panels from black cardstock. I cut two more panels from Ranger's manila cardstock and removed the center portion. I used Tim's fantastic tutorial to create my background on the manila, then adhered them to the black card. To finish it, I added gears cut from metal sheets plus various idea-ology bits and pieces. The Happy Birthday greeting was cut from black cardstock and rubbed lightly with metallic rub-on paste (I love that stuff!).
All the supplies I used to make my card can be found at Elizabeth Craft Designs, Simon Says Stamp, and Amazon via the links below.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
