Another masculine birthday card


I’ve really enjoyed creating some more masculine cards recently – I’m finding the Swirly Birds stamp set and Swirly Scribble framelits lend themselves extremely well to this.   I also think that two of the new in-colours work brilliantly for this – Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy.  I was playing around with these colours a few weeks back, and this is one of the cards that I didn’t happen to feature in the Stampin’ Creative blog hop:

Swirly Bird, Swirly Scribbles, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, masculine

This is an easy, CAS card, I think.  The base is Emerald Envy, with a whisper White mat.  I stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Wishes (of course!) in Archival Basic Black first, then stamped the large solid swirls in Emerald Envy.  Next, the outlines in Dapper Denim and finally I filled in with the small swirl, also in Dapper Denim.  I tried not to overcrowd it.  To add a bit of interest and texture, I cut one of the swirls out using the Swirly Scribbles framelit dies and layered it over the central Emerald Envy swirl.  As usual, I constructed with tombow.  That’s it!  Hope you like it.

Come back on Tuesday – it will be my 100th blog, so there will be blog candy on offer!
