Card no. 61 - Wishing you a magical day

Here we go.... this card not only took me a whole day to make, but also part of the evening - reason ... Baby no. 2 :) My sweet Hannah! She is a ball full of energy and laughter.

Using Bev's faaabulous tutorial on how to use Spellbinders Nesties made the first-time use absolutely astonishing! I am in lve!

This card is for my hubby's buddy - funny thing is that my hubby thinks it's little too girly. Naaaah! Right?
To me the great thing about this image is that Aladin looks kinda like my hubby -- teee heee ....

Also I wanted to share "What I want for Christmas" idea. Fabulous Theresa Collins has designed with a help of a "company" something called THE STAMPMAKER ... you know where I am going with this ... right? Well, the best part ... it retails for "only" $169! Pretty doable, I think! You can read all about it on her blog. I am trying to come up with some kind of holiday/celebration for gift-giving, but I think no chance - so I am just going to wait for Christmas - can hardly wait! :)

Anyhoo, here is the card! Inside was pretty plain, so I just took the picture of

The Front View

I embossed the flowers using the Spellbinders' Embossing mat and MS Embossing Tool. Oh, my goodness it was soooo easy to do. Way easier than on the hard surface.

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Basic Grey - Cappella Collection
Stamp: Whiff of Joy - Aladin from 1001 Night Collection colored with ProMarkers, ShinHan Markers
Embelishments: Prima Flowers, Stickles, Rhinestones from KaiserCrafts, Ribbon from Michael's, Mosaic Sickers by Crystal Stickers (by Mark Richards)
Tools: MS Border Punch, Spellbiners - Label No. 4, MS Branch & Rose Leaf Punch

Michaela, glad to see you card making again......when I am trying to keep a card masculine I usually use buttons for embellishments instead of flowers. Just a suggestion.
