The challenge at Time Out - TOC#3 is to make a birthday card with the optional twist of making in masculine in style, I did masculine!! I also saw Lisa's card and this is a nod to her beautiful card! I got my PTI stamps and dies the other day and I'm really enjoying playing with them. I've used the colours from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#70 challenge - monochromatic.
I cut the mat layers from the two shades of grey, stamped the word birthday in the corner of the smaller layer and then die cut the word "Happy". I cut another word in black and then used the inlaid die technique. I used the same technique on the inside to create a very bold greeting. This is a perfect guy card - mono colours and clean, simple lines. Really pleased how this turned out.
This card should have been really quick to make, but I did a stoopid thing! I adhered the mats to the wrong side of the card and had to cut it off and adhere it to a new card base. Note to self - must check to make sure that the card base is the right side up!!! That's all for now. See you soon.
