This is another masculine birthday card – this one for my new BIL 🙂
I was inspired by this lovely manly card here on Splitcoaststampers. Thanks mwben! So, for my card, I kept to the Newsprint DSP colours – Basic Black and Very Vanilla, except I brightened the card up a little with some Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain ribbon. Then I sponged around the edges of the DSP and the stamped tree with Basic Black to add a vintage look. The sentiment came from the ever-handy Teeny Tiny Sentiments (a must-have stamp set).
Now, SU have a new product in the Summer Mini (you can click to see the catalogue on the right bar of this page) – and it’s the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz – which I LOVE! I’ve been smooching everything, lol! It’s a great effect. This is a close-up of the gold smooching over the tree:
And this card took no more than 20 minutes to make – easy peasy!
Thanks for looking 🙂
