With Father's Day coming up, my son, Aaron, and I teamed up to make this card. Aaron came up with the ideas and I tried to create them. He wanted a circuit board (as my husband is an electrical engineer), so this is what we came up with:
Creative Embellishment's Circuit Board stamp heat embossed with silver on green cardstock was the perfect base. Aaron also wanted to add electronics to the board. CE's light bulb flair button was easy, but he wanted a battery too. After digging through my large stash of CE chippies we spotted a school locker left over from a graduation pack. I colored it black & gold and flipped it upside down! Now it is a battery! The sentiment is Creative Embellishment chippies that were heat embossed with several layers of Ranger's Princess Gold Embossing Powder so it looks almost fluid. I wanted to enter this card in CE's monthly challenge. The lantern in the mood board was the inspiration and I managed to find some gold metallic lace. Who would have guessed lace would look on a circuit board Father's Day card?!
I love how this card turned out! Plus it was so fun creating with my son. Now we can't wait for Father's Day to give Jeff this card!
