Feels so nice to be creating again after a couple of trips away in this past three weeks. Wonderful to find a simple straightforward sketch to base my card on and CAS(E) this sketch #311 is just perfect to work from.
I used a basic black cardstock and layered it up with a base of a wallpaper sample a friend gave me recently. The pattern and monochromatic theme are perfect for a manly greeting card. I stamped a repeating pattern using a compass stamp from My Mind's Eye "indie" using versafine in black. I chose a simple happy birthday from a Paper Smooches set I seem to go back to time and time again, onto a white cardstock. After using layers and elevating some with foam tape I achieved lots of texture and height for interest.
So glad you stopped in today!
