As I stated earlier I am in need of lots of birthday cards in the next three or four months so I thought it best to get started on a few of them ahead of time. This one I made using the foiled negative from the card design I did yesterday. I wanted this to be a more masculine theme and I chose the gold foiled sentiment to go with some Gina K. Designs Eggplant card stock.
For my background on the front panel I used a Cuttlebug folder from the Winter Collection which is a plaid design After I had embossed the design I went with a Encore gold pigment ink pad and lightly tapped on some ink. Then I took some Gina K. Designs detail gold embossing powder and sprinkled that on. After heat setting this background I then added it to a Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock base.
All that remained to do then was to add the foiled negative piece which I had adhered to a sticky paper and then die cut around it with a Cheery Lynn Designs scalloped die. This negative piece was left after I used a Gina K. Foiling Sheet sentiment previously and covered it with iCraft Deco Foil. I just could not stand to toss this away as it looks so gorgeous now on this card.

You can check the post previous to this one to see the way I originally used the sentiment design. I like the way it looks both ways.
I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which the theme is Anything But Christmas, Crop Stop Blog Linky Party #23 Anything Goes, and also in the Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #57 which is Anything Goes.
Thanks for stopping in and for all the awesome comments you leave me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
