One For The Boys


Hello friends and followers.  This week I have been playing with an orange, brown and buff colour palette for a male birthday card.  I find this colour palette with the die cut star and circle background stamping works well.


I blended distress inks in yellows and oranges onto an oblong of  smooth white card and stamped a background pattern onto it in dark brown ink.  This was mounted onto an oblong of brown card then onto a buff A6 card blank.

A medium sized star was die cut, stamped with part of the background stamp in brown ink and edged with orange distress inks.  The star was attached to the card with a swirl of thin cord behind.  A computer generated sentiment strip was added under the star.


Materials used:
Below is the same design in a blue and green colour palette with an embossed star and die cut sentiment on a navy card blank.

You know Sylv, both the colourways look equally as effective. No way I could choose just one of your wonderful creations. Shabneez x
