Hello everyone, I'm back again with a masculine Birthday card to share with you. It's my Father-in-Law's Birthday today, and I needed to make him a card. I had these stamps out on my craft table, and decided to use them for his card. The card did not take all that long to make, as I had a design in mind, and so I managed to complete the card in about half an hour.
I cut a piece of smooth watercolour card 11cms x 11cms, and stamped the image using Potting Shed Archival Ink. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, and then added the sentiment, also using Archival Ink. I edged the panel with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.
I cut a larger piece of kraft card, a little bit smaller than my card blank, and randomly stamped the two fern stamps over the background, using Olive and Library Green Archival Ink. I matted both panels onto dark brown card.
Unlike both of my previous cards, I have gone for a much simpler design, showing that you can make a very stylish design in a short space of time. The earthy colours make this card ideal for a masculine Birthday card.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
