Mens Birthday Card Idea

Project Details from Craig:

The main element used was plain white card stock. I then chose a topper from my male Hunkydory little book I have that would cordinate.  I then decided on all the additional elements of the card from the main background and the additonal colour card stock I'd use. The main sky background is also by Hunkydory so I instantly knew I needed my outline matt and layers to be a Dark Blue - I used Papermilldirect Navy plain card - 240gsm.

I love card you can print onto, I love printing my own sentiments (and inserts) but not all White card allows you to do so.  Printing onto card  takes the use of card into another level.

Plain White Card. (sentiment printed onto this card)
