I have a co-worker named Arnold. Arnold believes his name is “Awesome” instead. And…don’t tell him I said this, but he really is pretty dang awesome.
We had a BEAR of a week at work and
Arnold Awesome took the brunt of it. I figured he needed a card to tell him what he already knew – that he’s the best. 🙂 And it has a pretty trophy on it!
The stamps are from Lawn Fawn’s Best Puns Ever. I don’t have the dies (still coveting…) so it came close to being a one layer card. Then I realized I had these awesome oval stitched dies from Gina Marie, so I used the third largest to create a focal point for my card. These dies cut like butter and the price point is excellent – highly recommend!
I used distress ink with an ink blending tool for the background and copic markers for the trophy. I added glossy accents to the stars for some dimension and a sprinkling of gold star sequins. I also drew dashes with a white gel pen – on hindsight, maybe I should have had the Cricut draw them because it bugs me so bad that they aren’t straight and even.
And of course – the most obvious goof of all…my hand slipped when I stamped the sentiment and I fixed it as best as I could by triple outlining the word “best” with my Copic Multiliner and added a line underneath. For emphasis – that works right?! I definitely wasn’t tossing the card at that point. :p
Thank goodness I don’t have to live up to the “Awesome” moniker – and Arnold liked it anyway. 🙂
