Birthday card for man

I always search for new ideas for making a birthday card for my brother.  He will be 97 soon and I've made him many cards over the years.  I went through some backgrounds that I had made earlier while practicing techniques.  Here's the result.

This background was made by brayering ink onto the inside of an embossing folder before embossing the cardstock.  I added a layer of glossy copper cardstock before mounting it on a white card base.  The sentiment was stamped onto a wooden business card and embossed with copper embossing powder.  The corners are stickers.

Thanksgiving cards

It took this oldstamper a long time to make Thanksgiving cards this year, but I think I'm finished.

I took a few close-ups to show the differences in these cards.

These are all shadow box cards.  The opening inside was created with a die from Simon Says Stamp, called Far Away Forest Collage.  My previous 2 posts showed some of the steps involved in creating these cards.  The leaves are glued to the watercolor background.  The leaves were cut with a variety of punches and some leaves are popped on dimensional adhesive.
