SHC - Let's Celebrate ...

... Hello again! This is an extra post today as I've switched my SHC blog day with Anika. I've got a clean and simple masculine birthday card to share with you today:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Simply Celebrate; Altenew - Plentiful Pines
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Black Amalgam
Dies: Lawn Fawn - Simply Celebrate
Accessories: White Card; Black Card; Kaisercraft DP - Blue Bay; Copic Markers; White Pen; Clear Embossing Powder

I'm submitting this card to CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#368 as I used their sketch for the layout of the card.

I stamped the balloons on white card, coloured them with Copic markers, added a touch of white for a highlight, restamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then used the matching die to cut out the image. I found some design paper in my stash that matched the balloons, would have been easier to do it the other way round, but this works. I added a strip of black card above the design paper and used dimensional pads to attach the balloons. I finished the front with a clean, crisp sentiment. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of the design paper and on the white panel stamped a birthday greeting, along with some more of the balloons.

This was made for my brother-in-law and is on its way to him now - I'm safe to share it here as he won't see it!

That's all from me today - keep safe, stay in and craft. See you soon.

I really like the combination of the pretty balloons with the rustic paper. totally makes it masculine. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the CC&S challenge blog!
