Popcorn Edwin

I needed another birthday card for guy. Guys are so hard to make cards for. This turned out okay, not the best but not every card can be the best, I guess. I do like it though. This is an older gentlemen and does not strike me as an angel but he will get a kick out of an angel on his card or at least I think he will.


I used heartbreaker Edwin and the popcorn. It is all colored in copics. The wings and the background have shimmerz painted on. The popcorn has some stickles. The red I ran through my crimper, that I haven't used in years, both ways to make the  waffle effect. Added some buttons and ribbon. On the inside I am going to write "Hope you have a poppin' good birthday."
Have a great day.
