This is a card that I made for the heart surgeon who has been tending to our friend. The doctor recently had a birthday and I wanted to make something special for him. He used to play hockey for the University of Manitoba. Did a little research and found that the school colors are gold and brown. The school mascot is the bison. All searched some ideas on this website and found this: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2361610
Decided that I would try to make a card to look like a hockey jersey. Used the SU canvas stamp on the background to make the paper look like fabric. The stamped a bison in like ink. Did a little sponging around the edges and added some stamped stars. Also added some punched stars. Put the name on the back with my new Hero Arts letters die and CB numbers. Sentiments from Inkadinkado and SU. I struggle with making masculine cards and had a hard time resisting the urge to add flowers, flourishes or butterflies.
