Dude! Birthday Card

I'm really enjoying the Dude cart I just got and decided to use my favorite cut from it. This card will be for my older brother who is a former Marine and definitely has all the attitude to back up the boots. I really love my brothers and it's not really tradition in my family to make a big deal of birthdays, but I hope to change that. We don't live near each other, but I think he might enjoy the card. I hope you do too. I designed it on my Gypsy, used he Cuttlebug for the dry embossing, distressed the papers and used Tim Holts Crushed Olive and Vintage photo inks to give it a more masculine look. I also added "screw" brads and twine. The sentiment is hand-written and I hope to have it available in the future as a stamp...Enjoy!

I used green because it's my favorite color. All elements of the card are from Dude!

Inside is also embossed, and layered.

Very masculine.....I would love to know more details on how you made this card. I am a newbie at card making so I need the details. Thank your brother for his service to our country for me.

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
