My brother-in-law is celebrating a milestone birthday next week, so I made this card for him. I used a retired SU! "Happiness is a Journey" stamp set for the train image which was stamped with Versamark, then heat-embossed with gold embossing powder. The background panel is Daffodil cardstock, stamped with a retired SU! "weathered" background in Smoky Slate ink. Both panels along with the cardbase were die cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. I added 3 black die-cut circles along with 3 golden Candi Dots to the side, along with a SNSS birthday sentiment. For the final touch, I used a pencil eraser to sponge white craft ink to look like smoke coming out of the stack. Life truly is a journey, and it definitely gets weathered along the way, but hey! There's still smoke coming out of the stack as we huff and puff along, right?
Have a great weekend and stay warm (or cool) wherever you happen to live in the world. Thanks for stopping by!
