Geeks rule the world!

When my son told me this joke (and explained it to me),  I just had to make a card with it as it was just so…CuTe! Yes I’m a mother of a geek, and proud to be, as one day he will rule the world! 😉 I dared him to give it to a girl…but at the moment I’m still the love of his life! 🙂

geek joke

As Tellurium is silver and white (I had to look that up of course), I thought of ink embossing my Sizzix embossing folder with VersaMark ink on the flat side of the folder. I first masked the area where I was going to put my bird, then I ran my card though my Big Shot and added silver embossing powder on it before heating it with my heat gun. As the ink only went on the flat part of the folder, the raised dots did not get any ink, so I could get a silver and white effect on my card. I cut my “les Piafs” bird from a card stock I had previously painted with Heike Schafer Metal effect paint and stuck it on some foam adhesive to give it a raised look. The hand written text is also from the same card stock.

My kids gave me the thumbs up for this card and I hope you enjoyed it too! (I know of at least 1 member of my family who will find it funny!)
