Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
This is my second post for today - and it's a quick one. I wanted to share a masculine birthday card I made for a bestie. I love the Altenew "Be a Lighthouse" set for masculine cards. It's easy to stamp the images and it's also easy to color. to add to the masculine feel, I added some striped DSP from a very, very old pack of SU DSP. I think it's so old it pre-dates this decade! I've kept it though, because of the pinstripes!
Before we get to my card, let's take a look at the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge
I started by die-cutting a stitched circle and then stamped the images onto the circle and colored them with my Copic Markers. I mounted the circle onto the card base with some fun foam and did the same with the sentiment. As this is a masculine card, all embellishments were kept to a minimum.... like... nothing :-)
Here's my card:
I used the same images to decorate the inside of the card and added sentiments from the Altenew Beautiful Inside set.
I used the images on the envelope, too.
On a personal note:
As this our last day of holiday, it's back to the grindstone tomorrow. Having been out for two weeks, work is going to be pretty hectic for a couple of days, so I won't be blogging until later in the week. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
