Birthday RAK

I made this card in response to a SCS member who requested birthday cards for a gentleman who's turning 94 next month. I stamped and embossed this image a few days ago and had it lying on my table, so I thought it would be perfect for the occasion. You can click on the photo to see more detail. I embossed the image with chocolate brown EP and then used a small brush and some bleach to lighten the cabin. I added a few punched reindeer to keep with the cabin-in-the-woods theme and then added a few antique brass eyelets for masculine interest. I hope this card brings a smile to a young-at-heart fellow whom I'll most likely never meet. RAK's are a great way to make people feel cared for :)
Have a wonderful Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Creative genius at work AGAIN! Love how you punched your fence at the bottom! Your eyelets and embossing are totally fabulous on this wonderfully masculine card. Anne Ryan

Nicely done, I especially like the way you used the MS fence post at the bottom, I have this punch and haven't used it much...needed some inspiration...Jill
