Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made for my nephew and am playing along with Ann's challenge to create a masculine card at The Paper Players.
The Paper Players always has great challenges, I have found myself not having time (making time?) to play along, so this week I made sure to do so.
I used Altenew's Spectacular Adventures stamp and die set. I think the idea of the reflection in glasses is so clever and there are three different scenes to choose from - obviously I chose the mountain scene. The glasses were stamped in black, then I used Gina K's Warm Glow Amalgam ink to stamp the scene. It's a light ink to use for that "no-line" stamping look. Copic markers were used to color the scene, then the piece was die cut.
I used one of my favorite plaid prints from the retired Stampin' Up Plaid Tidings DSP - I hoard this paper pack lol! The panel was trimmed down and layered on a white card base. The sentiments were stamped on a white strip, layered on a slightly larger one of Garden Green cardstock, the adhered to the card. Lastly the glasses were added with foam tape for a bit of dimension.
Thanks for talking time to stop by. I hope you're having a great week!
