Thanks for coming to my blog today! I’m super excited to be featured in this month’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by the amazing Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top ten of the May 2017 International Highlights with my Tarnished Foil masculine card. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that voted for my card! I am still doing the happy dance 🙂
Today we are continuing with the masculine theme for the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop.
My card today was inspired by one of the samples featured on page 83 of the new 2017-2018 catalog. I created this card for my husbands upcoming 50th birthday party (shhhh, don’t tell him). I hope he likes it!
I love how the Vellum layer gives the stamped images a bit of a muted look.
- 4 1/4″ x 11″ Basic Black card base
- (3) 3 3/4″x 5″ Whisper White cardstock
- 4″ x 5 1/4″ Vellum cardstock
- Scrap Emerald Envy cardstock- die cut
- Scrap Basic Black cardstock- die cut 3
When stamping the candles on the 3 3/4″x 5″ Whisper White card front layer, I used a plastic ruler as a guide.
To give a bit more dimension to the die cut greeting I layered 4 die cuts together and then added some clear wink of stella to add a bit of shimmer to the top layer.
The additional 3 3/4″x 5″ Whisper White cardstock layer on the inside of the card front gives all our party guests plenty of space to write my husband a birthday note.
To finish my project I stamped a couple of candles to the outside of the envelope to coordinate with the card.
