Like yesterday, I got to sit down and create tonight.
So I thought I'd enter another challenge or two.
This card is for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches,
and for the Hand Stamped Sentiments colour challenge this week.
Those little strips at the bottom of the sketch, just screamed flag to me, so I trimmed the ends of the DSP strips to create little flags.
This card is for a family friend who is turing 80 next month.
I tried to make his card a more masculine card. And with the Patio Party DSP I tried to focus on the more masculine colours like blue.
Here it is. I used the Memorable Moments stamp set for the sentiment - LOVE this set.
First I stamped the images with Midnight Muse ink on Whisper White.
Then I carefully cut them all out - I am HOPELESS at lining up stamps - even with a stamp-ama-jig.
So it's easier for me to just cut them out individually.
The "Happy" sentiment I cut out with the Bitty Banners framelit, and then trimmed down the ends to make a shorter flag, and then I mounted it on Midnight Muse cardstock and cut around the white to make a matte.
I used the middle sized scallop circle punch, to punch out a pattern of the DSP.
I chose the argyle pattern because it's a bit more masculine.
I was trying to counteract those tiny butterflies which are a tad feminine.
The large white panel was embossed with the new chevron textured impressions folder.
It doesn't photograph too well, but I think I captured it clearly in the photo above.
And here's a better look at the final product.
