This past weekend I got to go back home and visit my mom for her birthday, have a wonderful little happy hour for her and of course, make her a birthday card! She is getting ready to move into a new house and one of her rooms has a yellow, gray and black theme and I thought this card would be PERFECT for her birthday and possibly as an accent piece in the room!
I kept the front generic with no sentiment, just in case the card makes it into the new room! =) Hint, hint, hint.
I will honestly admit that I am not a fan of braying. I hate the mess, I hate cleaning the dang gone thing and I hate that my fingers are a wreck afterwards. However, with this card I made an exception and I am glad that I did. I had to redo this several times to get the white embossing to pop and I am quite happy with the results.
I did a quick bray job with Basic Grey on white paper and then embossed over it with white. Up close the effect is super cool with the different color texture and I am considering rethinking my disdain for the brayer! MAYBE! =)
