Happy Birthday, Lord of the Rings Fan!

This card is for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #14. The movie this week was "Lord of the Rings - Fellowship of the Ring."

I never read the Lord of the Rings books in school. I thought they would be boring. My goodness, how wrong was I? I loved the movies. I've seen them several times. They are classic...as is the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien. What a creative mind! My inspiration for this card came from the "one ring to rule them all". I got a Big Shot over a week ago, and this is the first time I've used this embossing folder. I thought it was perfect for this card. I chose this BasicGrey paper because the color reminded me of the lush scenery in the movie.

Ever since I saw these movies, New Zealand is on the top of my list of places I want to visit. The landscapes in the movie are breath-taking!

Like Sankari, Brooke, and Carol, I wanted to use Tolkien-inspired fonts. I got these Tolkien fonts (Elfen Ring font & Kelt Extended font) from this site.

Card Ingredients
Stamps: none
Paper: Urban Prairie (BasicGrey), Gold Foil (Only the Best Los Gatos)

I love the "ring" embossing folder that you've used on your card! I also love the movies, but I haven't been able to watch them more than once because they are so long!! How have you done it? Ha. Ha.

Wonderful card!
