... it's week two for our gorgeous cool colours - light blue, turquoise and neutral - CR84FN37. For my second card I've made a Birthday card. My uncle celebrates his birthday next week and these colours are perfect for a masculine card. My uncle is a Mason so I decided to use the Square and Compasses as the main design element on his card. I found the symbol in the Internet and used it to make a backing sheet for the card and also for the focal image.
I printed the backing sheet onto some plain white card and layered it onto black gloss card. The main image was cut out with my nesties and I added colour to the image with my distress inks, and layered it onto black and turquoise mats. I useed my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the birthday greeting. It is really clean and simple, and perfect for my Uncle.
