My DH turned 45 this year...whew he is getting old (I love teasing him LOL). Anyway, I saw a card style in the Creating Keepsakes magazine that I wanted to try, so I gave it a whirl. I really like the way it turned out. He loves sweets so what better to put on it than a bunch of sweet treats? When I gave him the card he said, "next time you could at least sign it" (I will explain the significance in a minute), so I had to show him the pocket sentiment. I really thought I made it obvious with the tag pertruding out of the side and the bright ribbons, but you know men LOL. Of course I loved glittering this bad boy up and I also glossy accented the sundae glass and cherries. I also heat embossed some clear sparkle to one of the presents.
The DH has a TERRIBLE track record for card/gift giving. His family just doesn't do much of anything for birthdays, so I guess old habits are hard to break. Well there have been several times where I have had to sit in the car while he ran into a store to buy me a birthday card. There was also once where he gave me one that he hadn't signed and I handed it back at him and asked "who's this from?" he replied, "me" and I said "well, are you planning on returning it?" he said "no, why" and I replied "then if you can't sign the da*# thing, then don't bother". Of course we laugh about it now, but I was not amused at the time!!
I love how it turned out. I just love bright colors…they are so fun! Have ever tried a step card?
