"masculine" Birthday Card with 4 meanings in it!



This card has 4 meanings. First, the recipient loves Hockey. The snoopy ice hockey player stamp comes with the puck in a design, and I inked that puck only, many times, to make this "frame". Ice hockey skates is from Jolee's. I attached it with dimentional foam but also attached the baker's twine, to look like it's "hanging". Secondly, the color combination of black & gold is Pittsburgh Penguins' Color and black & gold (more like Yellow) is also Steeler's color. I bought this background paper, black with yellow random spot. The seconcd pic. shows the inside of this card. The recipient always wants to claim "he is the KING", and I found this image of crown & the sentiment in my CD, so I printed it out, added the gold pearls, traced the image of "KING" with Golden gel pen. I used the nesties to cut the gold color CS, layered it under the printed out white CS. Well, that's the 3rd meaning on this card for this recipient. Adding this "Penguin" cheerleader with pom pom in gold is the final touch to the card for "Pittsburgh PENGUINS" fan! LOL! I luv this card! LOL!

Great card! So funny and cute. Only thing wrong - I thought the King stood for LA Kings so now I'm disappointed. Oh well, I'll pretend :)
