Crazy Twins Birthday

My husband and his brother celebrated their birthday Saturday. My nieces made them these really crazy hats. It was hilarious and I had to capture the moment. My brother-in-law took us all out to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. It was a really nice evening. It would have been so much nicer if I hadn't had a mega headache, but it was still a great evening with some really great memories.
This is the card I made for my husband. Anyone that knows him knows he LOVES bubble gum, so I made him this gumball machine card. I used the JustRite stamper to make the sentiment. I colored the image with Copic markers and then used a glaze pen to color over the gumballs to give them some shine and dimension. I also used the clear Spica glitter pen to highlight the metal parts of the gumball machine and to color over the staples to give them some texture.
This is the inside. I wanted to be able to write something without it showing in the front, so I folded a piece of cardstock and used the Making Memories semi-circle slot tool to make a closure tab. Now, I had the room to write and the message was private!

Supplies I used-Stamps: Sweet Tooth(Inkadinkado), the Paper Studio , JustRite Stamper; Paper: DCVW Nana's Kids, Papertrey pure poppy, white; Ink: Papertrey Pure Poppy, Versamagic Chalk Key Lime, Colorbox Chalk French Blue, Momento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: circle and rectangle nestibilities, Copic markers, Scrappers Floss, MM slot tool, Sakura clear glaze pen, clear Spica glitter marker, fastenater and staples, edge distresser

Have a blessed day!
