Quick Father's Birthday card

It was my father-in-laws birthday not to long ago and I realized that I needed a card quick! I had only a few minutes to get one made for him. I thought the Noble Deer set would be perfect! I picked my set, now all I needed was the color scheme!! That can be so hard sometimes!! But I quickly decided on very vanilla, chocolate chip, and mellow moss. I ran the chocolate chip card stock through my Sizzix machine using the Cuttle Bug Perfect Paisley embossing folder. I stamped both the image and the saying in chocolate chip. I used a saying from the set "It's Your Birthday" (which will be retiring very soon!). Then I used my ticket corner punch for the corners. I attached all of the pieces. And that was it! The card was done! He loved it!!!

Now looking back at the card I probably could have sponged the edges with chocolate chip to give it an aged look!! I still really like how the it turned out!! Oh and sorry about the picture, I took it in the car on the way to dinner!!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
