Unlike my friend Monika I struggle to make masculine cards. She is very good at it.... but I struggle a bit, so when I got asked to make a 21st card for a male.... I really pondered on what to do. So off to visit Pinterest for some ideas. I took inspiration from a couple of cards to come up with my final idea (can I tell you that there are three aborted cards and scraps on my desk!)
For this card I started with some washi tape stripes in black and mustard colour, including a sparkly black one - I know it's a masculine card but hey - who doesn't like a little sparkle! The die cut circle is a dark dark grey cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die. I die cut the numbers (Couture Creations die) from some yellow card stock and stamped the "st" onto a scrap of the yellow and hand cut it. The birthday sentiment was from a freebie set sitting on my desk. And finally some Liquid Pearls in Onyx Black to finish. I am entering this into the "Anything Goes" at Simon Says Stamp.
I was away for the long Labour Day weekend and didn't get any crafting done, so have been itching to get back into it. A few Design team cards have been made.... 3 in fact - so look out for some reveals and sneak peeks coming over the next few weeks. Trying to get myself ahead now!
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment so I know you've been.
