I bought some gorgeous Studio Calico papers and wanted to make a birthday card with them. I grabbed my Hero Arts Friendly Flags stamp set, the papers and went to town. I used a sentiment from Birthday Messages in my new Vintage Cream ink from Papertrey.
I cut out each of the pennants and attached them to the card front with my every trusty foam dots. Love using those for some dimension. I debated using a gel pen to draw some string or use twine, but decided not to. I could've impressed it with the linen impression plate but left it smooth and simple.
This card turned out a lot more masculine than I thought it would, but I quite like it. And it is always good to have some manly cards on hand, right? And I am really enjoying the Vintage Cream ink - nice and juicy and quite opaque. I think it might be just as nice as my other favourite light ink - Colorbox Frost White.
I am participating in the following challenges:
