Good morning, friends! And happy Monday!
Anyone who has visited my blog often knows that I prefer creating lovely feminine cards far more than making masculine ones. I really struggle with guy cards...they never seem "done"...probably because I can't add bows, lace, sequins, flowers and "fluff"!
Well, yesterday afternoon I was working with a sketch and wanted to make it into a gate-fold card. That seemed complicated enough, so I chose non-feminine DP and left off the frills.
I dug out an old 6x6 paper pack by Webster's Pages called "Ladies & Gents" so all the colors coordinate perfectly...then I just had to find inks to match. My base cardstock is Paper Studio heavy weight ivory and the inks I used are: FSJ "Coffee Bean", Stampabilities "Lime", Studio G "Aqua" & "Turquoise". To get the right depth of color I used my Misti stamping platform and restamped the pale aqua several times.
The "Happy Birthday" sentiment on the front is an Inkadinkadoo stamp, the watch is from a set called "Time Travelers Memories" by Prima, the compass is Sandylion "Are We There Yet?"
And on the inside of the card the sentiment is a SweetStamps stamp, "Old Fashioned Wish", the Bible verse is from Our Daily Bread, "Scripture Series 3".
This was an interesting card to make, but as usual, took me far longer to make than it should have!
I'd like to enter it in a few challenges:
