Here is a card I made for my friend Megan's birthday. It's not until September, but I saw this same sentiment on a card on someone's blog (forgive me, I forget who) and I just had to use it for her card! She has a quirky sense of humor, just like me. I used a grouchy looking dragon from Dustin Pike. I say grouchy, bc he doesn't really look all that dangerous to me, he just looks like he's trying to scare you. LOL. I know some men like that. The card base is by My Mind's Eye. I used lots of brown chalk to make it look dirty or burnt. The only thing I acutally did burn is the brown cardstock on the front and inside of the card. Like I've said before, I'm a bit of a pyromaniac like my hubby, so I had fun making this card. The heat also makes the cardstock bow out a bit so it looks more 3D.
I should mention as well, I figured out a little trick on my own today for how to attach this ribbon to the card. As you can see the ribbon disappears on the left side of the card. I used my Exacto blade to cut a slit in the fold of the card. That way I had no loose ends, I could slide it inside and hide it. And you can see below how it comes inside and I've tucked it under the cardstock.
