One For The Boys 3

Hi, Sylvia here with a male inspired birthday card. I sometimes find it difficult when it comes to designing male cards, but find this colour palette with the star focal point 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 dark brown ink and the star edged with spiced marmalade distress ink. The card was attached to the card with a swirl of thin hessian cord behind it. A computer generated sentiment strip was added under the star.

Above is the same design made in a blue and green colour palette with an embossed star and die cut sentiment on a navy card blank.

Back next week with more ideas.
