It's Your Day

Always in the market for a great guy card, this one would seem to fill the bill . . .

After lightly stoking the rust background with a bleach-soaked rag, it was heat-dried and then stamped and embossed.  Because of the great and mysterious variety of finishes, you never know what you're going to get when you bleach cardstock, so always try out a sample first.  The results on this one looked like beautiful, hand-rubbed wood to me and I thought it suited the theme perfectly.
