Golf Birthday Card

I celebrated my birthday at my sister's house this past weekend.  I had a great time visiting and eating all the yummy food my sister made!

I made this card for my BIL (his birthday is a day before mine) who is an avid golfer. All the stamps I used are from A Muse. I love how you can buy individual stamps and make a scene with them! I used a really light blue Copic marker (BG000) to color in the blue background.  One of these days I'll invest in getting the airbrush system! For the grass, I used the Martha Stewart grass border punch and layered a small strip of grass behind the front green piece of cardstock for more dimension.  

For the inside of the card, I used two green Copic Sketch markers and "flicked" the brush tip end of the markers to make grass blades. I made the golf ball by cutting out a circle and used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder to make the dimples in the ball.

When you open up the card, the ball kinds springs out at you!  I made the "spring" by punching a smaller circle and cutting around it in a spiral.  I have seen this technique in passing while blog surfing.

Thanks for swinging by!
