I came up with the layout for today’s card and had almost completed it when I saw Brian King’s card for the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge this week. My original card did not have a sentiment on it, but that was an easy fix.
And here is the Sketch I CASED:
I try to make a few masculine cards, even when I do not need one to send out! It is sort of a challenge for myself. I love this stamp set and think of it as a flexible stamp set. I chose to use all of the pieces of the set on this card.
I love stamping and then cutting the pieces up into different shapes. Sometimes it works wonderfully, and other times not so much. My only concession to this one is the offsetting layers as opposed to them being even with each other. The star in the corner reminds me of the Conch that we used to see on chaps or a hat sometimes. The curly-cues are the little strip of card stock that was left over. I used my bone folder to break down the fibers and then peeled the piece into two pieces. It did cause issues with my photograph. The little curls wanted to leave a shadow on the card!
