I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother, so that's the direction I went with my card. I started by embossing the big distressed polka dot background in white on kraft going lengthwise and then horizontally across my panel. Next I offset just a bit and stamped in crumb cake both directions and then embossed that with clear embossing powder to really make the offset stand out. The sentiment from Better Together is stamped in early espresso and then embossed in clear, then I added the chevron washi type stamp to the top and bottom edges in old olive. For embellishment I wrapped some hemp twine around the panel, tied in a bow and then added some darling small and large sequin stars from Pretty Pink Posh. I finished off with a bunch of distressing, dry embossing the old olive panel with the dot matrix folder and then stamping the distressed background from Better Together around the edges of my card base and sponging early espresso on every layer.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Next up on the hop is Amber.
