Hubby's Birthday Card

Keep checking back, I'm gathering some goodies for blog candy to be offered soon..........

Yup, my hubby turns 39 today. So, of course, I had to make him a great card.

He is an Elvis fan so when I saw a great card on SCS with this image on it, I sent her a message and wondered if she would exchange some images with me. She gladly said "yes" -- thanks Laura V. -- and soon some great E images arrived in the mail. I've looked and I've looked but I can't seem to find this image so I can't let you know what company he is from. If I find out, I'll edit in the information.

I decided to use this famous picture of Elvis as my inspiration. But I certianly didn't want to use dots to
spell the word behind him like in the photo. So, instead, I used strips of cardstock.

Of course I had to add a little "bling" - I mean, come on, we are talking Elvis here!!

I am totally sure he will love this card. :-)

And here is the card that my son made for him .... he is so creative. He wanted the card to be a "book" so built the pages inside to fold up so it looked like a book. And he used some foam stickers for the binding -- they are actually sattelites but he thought they could look like the binding on old books. Wow!! Dad loved this card too, of course.

Supplies: Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Only Orange, Summer Sun (all Stampin' Up), Light yellow (unknown); Ink - Basic Black (SU!); Stamps - Elvis (unknown), Father Knows Best (Papertrey Ink); Other- rhinstones (unknown).

Thanks for visiting.

What an awesome stamp! As soon as I saw it . . . "He ain't nothin' but a hound dog," totally started playing in my head. LOL I am just a few years behind your DH, and I think my mom had ALL of Elvis' records. Great colors, and the rhinestones are PERFECT! Happy Birthday to your hubby!! :) Kel

Wow! Awesome card! The one your son made is soooo clever!!! Love the book!!!

I have seen Elvis stamps at Cornish Heritage Farms...could it be an older one they had?

Hope your hubby had a great birthday! I'm only 2 years behind him too!! :)
