Happy Birthday Mr. Mike!!

Quick post with a card I made for my cousin's 31st birthday. He will be 31 on January 31.

Tried to make this look like a work sock...the inside says "Hope your birthday doesn't stink"

If I made another work sock, I would make the red strip at the top thinner and not add the red on the heel and toe (should have looked at a sock first), overall I am still happy with the look of it.

I wanted the sock to have some texture, so I repeatedly ran it through the cuttlebug with the lattice embossing folder. Then, because I wanted it to look like a worn sock, I sanded it repeatedly - yes I am a slightly OCD crafter!!

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Cherry Cobbler and Basic Grey cardstock (SU)
  • Stocking die (SU)
  • Lattice embossing folder (SU)
  • Sanding block (SU)
  • Number dies (Sizzix)
I'd like to enter my sock into the SHAPE UP challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH.

Hey you, great to see you over in this 'hood! Thanks for playing at SOS. Very cool and unique idea! I've never thought to run something through an EF multiple times! Now I *need* to! And I would have never in a million years thought to make a work sock, though my hubs lives in them! Cheers!
