Birthday Card for my Husband

My husband's birthday was yesterday. He loves golf, so I made the card below for him. I used THIS CARD for my inspiration. I got the printed paper at Archiver's Friday (along with a TON of other stuff!) during a shopping spree with my friend Sharon. I used my Cricut Expression, Design Studio, and George and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges for the words.

I wrapped my husband's present in brown craft paper, using twine instead of ribbon. I made the tag by cutting a circle of chipboard out with my Cricut Expression, as well as the white paper that I used for the golf ball and the "grass". The golf ball was run through my Cuttlebug to get embossed and then I inked it. I stole one of my husband's golf tees (hey, he left it lying on the kitchen counter, so it was there for the taking! Heehee!), cut off part of it to the correct length using some wire cutters, and adhered it to the tag using Ranger's Glossy Accents. I CASED THIS CARD for my tag.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend!
