I don't usually make cards. This was a labor of love because it is for my son-in-law who has called me "mom" from the very first day of marriage! He is the son I never had and I am so blessed that he loves my daughter and our family the way he does! I started the card with a manilla tag that I distressed with wet distress ink. Then I lightly sprayed iridescent gold Radiant Rain over the whole thing, drying in between. I inked the edges with vintage photo, crimped and distressed a piece of tan cardstock so it would look like driftwood, added the fishing net and cut-out shells. I stamped "son" on this thin sheet of cork I picked up at my LSS and stamped and embossed the "happy birthday" It ended up being a fun card to make. Since my "Kevin" is a huge surfer, the inside just reads "Wishing you oceans of love and happiness". TFL!
