Traveler Masculine Birthday Card

I wanted to share the birthday card I made my husband over the weekend.  I just got this stamp set, Traveler, last week, and it was perfect for his birthday card.  

If you look at the burlap ribbon and the chevron ribbon closely, you'll see that they're darker than usual.  I wanted them both darker, so I dyed them with my new Crumb Cake Blendabilities.  This set of Blendabilites will be available to customers on August 1.

I colored the burlap ribbon with the medium marker from the Crumb Cake Blendabilities set.  I used the brush tip.  I just needed to color the one side.  I didn't color all the way up, since the top was going to be hidden under the train layer.

I colored the white part of the Chocolate Chip Chevron ribbon with the light marker from the same set of Blendabilities.  I didn't color all the way up on this one either.  If you want to see larger pictures of these two steps, just click on them.

Are you wondering where I got that button?  It's one of the Basic Metal Buttons.  They're silver buttons, but I colored them with the dark marker from the Crumb Cake Blendabilites pack.  I forgot to take a picture of these while I was coloring them.  What I did was color straight lines vertically (up and down) until covering the top of the button.  Once the ink was dry, I colored straight lines again, but did it horizontally this time (left & right).  I liked the look of the lines, so I kept it that way.

I also stamped the inside of the card, and you can see it on the right.  I sponged the inside layer with Crumb Cake ink, just like I did on the front of the card.  I've got the list of the supplies I used to make this card listed, along with links to each product in my ONLINE STORE, under the picture of the card below.
