My husband is getting very old. Unfortunately, so am I. I was working on his birthday card on Sunday afternoon, had everything cut out but had not yet chosen a background paper, and put it all aside when the Superbowl started. I woke up Monday morning to Betsy's MIM video and decided it was just the little extra step that my project needed.
Now I don't usually make novelty-type cards (who am I kidding? with so many boys in my life I make them all the time!), but with my husband getting so old and all (next year is a milestone birthday that he doesn't even want to think about - it's a bad one; even worse than you're probably thinking) I decided to make him a fun card. I think he's going to like it because he's a geeky nerd.
And here is the inside of the card. I made a life-size iPhone with my Silhouette. Hope he doesn't think he's getting a new one for his birthday! And I think that he's geeky enough to notice that I made it the size of my iPhone, not his newer model. We'll see.
The drop shadow die cuts add just the little kick that this card needed. I also used another technique that Betsy demonstrated a while back: paper folding. My stars (PTI Star Prints die cut from American Crafts POW glitter paper) are folded to add a 3D effect. Love this!
