Papertrey Ink masculine celebrate or congratulations card




Hello everyone,

Thank you for your good wishes on my HLS Design Team news! Today is Papertrey Ink blog hop time



Blog-hop-logo

and this time Nichole  gave us the sweetest photograph for inspiration



Blog hop inspiration

Aren't they gorgeous? Even though the shoes are beautifully feminine, I thought the colours would be fabulous for a masculine card, so I took inspiration from the grey, white and orange colours and came up with this:-




I used the beautiful star vellum and cut it with the Tipped Top die before cutting a strip from it to accommodate my sentiment, which I embossed in white.I stuck the vellum onto some Hero Arts light grey card and added the die cut Celebrate which I stacked to make it pop. I wanted the stars to shine and sparkle but I didn't have any orange glitter card, so I took a small piece of this sparkly acetate sheet from my stash



and applied it to some orange zest scraps and then die cut the stars which I placed around the card to give a splash of colour.



I think the film is a little bit expensive for just one sheet but it can go a long way if you use it sparingly. It is great to be able to get glittery card in any shade that you want, and as a bonus, the glitter is not going to come off. To finish off the card, I matted the panel onto some white card and added it to a smokey shadow card base with some foam tape. I'm pleased to have this card in my stash because I can adapt it to so many occasions (new job, exam success, driving test etc) by what I put inside the card at the time I need it.

I hope you enjoy the hop and I can't wait to see what everyone came up with.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
