Father's day is only a few days away - so how about some fun card ideas? Here's the twist: the CSS design team is showing off masculine cards that incorporate misting. Soooo, this is a mister-mister card, and all of a sudden I can't get "soul sister" out of my head.... ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo, the way you move ain't fair you know...
oh yeah, back to the card:
My dapper card features a he-would-never-actually-wear-that shirt and bow-tie combo. The background is misted on, using post-it strips and a bottle of mr. huey's manila mist.
The "A" on the shirt pocket is for my baby-daddy :) I can't keep surprises with these blog posts - sorry honey!
Here's a peek at how I created my background:
I eyeballed the placement of post-it strips and sprayed. I then removed the strips and placed new ones going the other way. Sprayed again. That's all there is to it. There was some leakage on the shirt front, but I quite like it. Rough him up a little, give him some street cred - he needs it with that light blue bow-tie....
really light blue.
