Masculine Birthday - The Deconstructed Sketch
This weekend was my husband's birthday. You would think that I would know exactly what type of birthday card to make for him, but I struggled with this one. I found a new sketch blog, Deconstructed Sketches, that looks so cool and the sketch jumped at me right away. I decided to go to the Well Worn paper and start from there. I think Well Worn has a great color combination for masculine cards ( which are so hard to create). None of my images seemed to fit my husband so I went with a sentiment only and added some embellishments to jazz it up a bit.
Ahhh now on to the challenge of making a masculine Valentine card.
Stamps - Engraved Greetings, Established Elegance, Since of Time
Ink - Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Paper - Well Worn DSP, crumb cake, very vanilla, not quite navy and early espresso card stock
Accessories - square lattice embossing folder, 1 1/4" circle punch, vintage tags, brads, linen thread, dimensionals
