My Grandpa is celebrating his 90th birthday and this is the card I made for him. I used sahara sand as the base and stamped houndstooth bg on the right third with chocolate chip, sponging around the edges. The chocolate chip layer is put through my cuttlebug textile folder and then brushed with vanilla craft ink to highlight the pattern. I used my ticket punch on the corners of it as well as the Au chocolat layer which was also stamped with my linen bg. Happy is from Polka dots and paisley stamped on creamy caramel. Birthday is from Happy everything. The big g is from Stampin'Up!'s onboard accents and covered with Au chocolat paper then sanded and chocolate chip smudged around the edges. The "randpa" part is stamped with my collage alphabet and torn and distressed on the edges. I used jute twine for the look. The big pieces is punched with a circle punch and a flower from my cuttlebug flower die is cut out with a chipboard coaster. It has chocolate chip and creamy caramel ink on it and the edges are sanded. TFL!
