I've used a few challenges to make this card. Our current challenge at The Male Room - TMR#2-15 is Shades of Blue and I've used blues and neutrals on this card. The layout is from this week's challenge at CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#108. The cue word at CASology - CAS#131 is birthday. This card came together really quickly. I simply cut three fishtail banners in different design papers and different sizes and adhered them flat to the card. Then I punched a black background frame, stamped a birthday greeting on white card and punched that out too. I then adhered the white panel onto the black, added some metal studs and used dimensional tape to adhere it to the front of the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer in black card and used the rest of the graph paper on top. I added one of the sentiment embellishments from the paper pack to complete the inside.
I showed this card to Kathryn yesterday evening and she was very impressed with it. I told her it was a guy card, and she replied it doesn't have to be - and then I showed her the inside :))) She just sighed. Well, I might make another similar one without the inside sentiment.
I've got a stack of ironing to do this morning - so time to watch more of the TV series Weeds - it's such fun and does make the ironing go quicker!! That's all for now - see you soon.
