For the Serious Golfer

I wanted to make a golf card to send to my Sister's Fiance to let him know how much I appreciate him for taking care of my Sister. He's a wonderful man and I couldn't have asked for a better brother-in-law or husband for my Sis. As you might have guessed he's a SERIOUS GOLFER. I mean, he's the guy that's at the club almost every day. He even makes his own golf clubs and clubs he sells. I've never met a more serious golfer. Now don't get me wrong...my Sis is not one of those golf widows. She likes to golf too and goes with Jeff as much as she can but she isn't as passionate as he is. Anyway, here's the card I made Jeff.


I knew which stamp set I was going to use (Anthony clear stamp set by Hannah Stamps) and I wanted to use colors that represented the grass and sand traps on a golf course so I used Garden Green and River Rock from Stampin' Up! The ribbon is SU!'s Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in River Rock, the Ink is Basic Black Classic Pad, Bordering Blue, Sahara Sand (retired) & Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers. Did you notice the Garden Green background? Cool huh? I used my Crop-A-Dile and embossed circles and used the back to look like the surface of a golf ball. This would be totally cool in Whisper White then punched out with a circle punch...hmmmmm...I might have to try that. LOL I also used Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the Whisper White stamped layer.

I hope you are as lucky as I am to have such a wonderful man as a (soon to be) brother-in-law!

Have a wonderful week!
