Here’s another simple birthday card that I made. This time I only used the circle die, thinking it would help make the card more masculine. When I got it all together I thought it still looked like a card I’d use for a woman, so I added the bling and called it a day!
The card base is black cardstock. I inked the edges to hide the white core. I must confess…I’ve only recently started “inking” anything and I think I’m addicted to it! I’m not sure how other people do it, but I bought these stencil fingertip sponges and I’ve been inking away!
The purple is a piece of scrap. I used My Creative Time’s die for the stitched circle and her Happy Birthday stamp. The “bling” is something I picked up at Wal-Mart. Some bloggers were talking about a line of $0.97 stuff at Wal-Mart so I had to go and check that out and ended up buying a bunch of items. The ribbon is from my stash.
As usual, I did 2 cards at the same time. Each has small differences, but it’s fun to experiment and see what you like the best.
Once again, these two cards aren’t my favorite projects, but they’re OK. I think I used up all of my creative mo-jo on Friday night. I was working on a BIG (well, big for ME) project that I will be posting on FRIDAY! I will give you a small hint here:
Stay tuned on Friday for this fun project! I was seriously “getting my craft on” when I made that one!
