Another card for you today :) I went against my grain and tried my hand at making a non-vintage/girly card last night. I think it came out ok but i'll leave it down to your expert eyes to let me know how I did.
Every single piece of paper came out of my scrap paper stash - why is it that after almost a month of dipping my hands into it, it still doesn't seem diminished?
I (sort of) followed the sketch for the Wednesday Sketch challenge at the Outlawz. I just placed my embellies differently.
I went for a light blue for the card base and a checked pattern for the contrast. I put the base front through the cuttlebug in my dot folder.
The image was free clipart and I thought it would be perfect for a birthday that falls in the month of February (noting the heart in the bears hand), as well as for a boy. I coloured this sweet thing with my Steadler koki pens. He is matted onto some blue cardstock.
The buttons and corner holders both came out of my stash. The corner holders are actually something I've had for well over a year and it's about time I dig into them!
All edges were inked in Roan.
The sentiment was another freebie which I coloured with a blue koki pen.
I'll be entering the card into the following challenges:
Outlawz - Monday Birthday Card
Outlawz - Wednesday Sketch
The Crafty Pad - Something for the boys
I know there were more but for the life of me I can't remember :) should have written them down! hahaha!
Here's one last look at the card:
Hope you all have Fantastic Fridays and the weekend ahead is magical :)
