Graduation is right around the corner, so grad cards are number one on my list to make. I'm the kind of stamper who does not like to mass produce (sometimes I might make two of one kind of card), so I need to get my creative juices flowing and get cracking.
The starting point for this card was the Freshly Made Sketches #31 Challenge. I flipped the sketch on it's side, because my shape fit a little better that way.
I had the cream colored label already cut and sponged from my last project, so that was my second jumping off point.....things just emerged from there and before I knew it, this card was done! It's a pretty straight forward design and doesn't have much for frills, but then again that's what you want in a masculine card, right?
The backround paper is from the Mocha Morning Specialty DP and has a bronzy, shimmery, metalic sheen to it.
Here's a list of supplies I used....
Stamps: Great Grads, Congrats
Paper: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Vanilla, Mocha Morning DP
Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede (sponging)
Accessories: Adhesive pearls, Framelits Labels die, 1 3/4" Circle punch, Circles #2 die, border EF by Provo Craft
Thanks for taking a peek!
