Papertrey Ink Masculine Birthday card.

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are cruising nicely into a new week.





It's Day 11 of the Summer Card Camp and we had new sketches and a new colour combination of kraft, brown, turquoise, lilac and deep pink to work with today and I chose to try sketch 3.

Like Jennifer, I found this a difficult colour combination to work with but I took on board her tip to use small amounts of some colours and it turned out ok in the end. I wanted to make a masculine birthday card and came up with this one




I made a panel with the kraft and brown card and the kraft part looked a bit stark so I stamped a star background stamp with Versamark ink to add a little interest. I used the lilac ink to stamp on the aqua mist card and lilac brads to fix them to the panel and I took the aqua mist onto the top panel by adding a little strip of striped paper. I die cut the word 'hello in brown card and overstamped a dotty background stamp with Versamark to finish it off before raising it on foam tape to give a little dimension.  I fixed the panel to the base card, rounded the bottom corners and swiped a little white ink round the edges to soften them a bit. I forgot to take a photo but the inside of the card has a large Happy Birthday stamp.

Once again, I'm going to enter this into the Moxie Fab World birthday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
