Zombie/Walking Dead birthday card

Hello All!

Recently a friend of mine celebrated a birthday.  She and I are both Walking Dead fans, crafters, and (I think) totally awesome ladies.  It makes sense that we are friends.  :)  It also makes sense that I made her a Walking Dead inspired birthday card.  
For those of you that watch the show, you may recognize the front: Daryl's wings.  (I tried to get the wings as close to his jacket as possible...would be cool to have stamps of his wings!)  To make the wings I ran two wing dies through my GC- but embossed only.  The wings were then fussy cut and Distress inks applied.  The wings were mounted on faux leather paper distressed with more ink.  The tent fold Kraft base had ink (Distress inks in Barn Door and Fired Brick) splattered on the background.
The inside is more splattering and two zombie sentiments (from Art Gone Wild).
Yes, the sentiment says "You're a great friend but if the zombies chase us, I'm tripping you. Sorry".  I know, I know- that is not very Daryl-like.  Perhaps more Shane-like or Nicholas.  
Next, is a reassuring (?) statement: "Don't worry, zombies are looking for brains. you're safe".  See?  That's not so bad.
The back is the ominous symbol from the end of the season.  A simple, fearsome "W".  With more distressed edges.  And more blood splatter.
Sure, it will not be a Hallmark card anytime soon.  But will Hallmark even be around after the zombie apocalypse?  Probably not.  But Daryl will.  

Hope you liked your card, Suzanne!
Have a great day!
Big Hugs,

  2. Oh this card is so cool . My grandson is obsessed with this show too you've given me an idea for his birthday card this year .

  3. I *love* my card!! It's sitting right here beside me. I especially like the blood spatters and the W on the back! I thought it was your last initial.... Do you have something to do with those walkers with Ws on their foreheads? vbg! And if I can run faster than you, you won't be able to trip me!

  4. Ohhhhh this is purely awesome!! My 15 year old loves the show and would about die to get this card :)
