I enjoy starting my cards from a sketch. Once I’ve chosen a sketch I rummage through our many stamp sets to challenge myself with one we’ve never used. Unfortunately there are quite a few that are sitting there prestige but hopefully this will change by the end of the year.
Yesterday I chose to use a stamp set – although it’s not an old one it’s one that hasn’t been used yet! The great thing is I feel as though I’m making my cards early this year – aka I made a Father’s Day card! 6 months early 🙂
The sketch I used is from a site I discovered yesterday called Seize the Sketch
Using the gorgeous grunge stamp set I stamped in Sahara sand on the background as a watermark with pear pizazz over the top to contrast. I used a piece of chocolate chip coredinations cardstock and the wood grain embossing folder to make a bark like side piece to go with the theme of the tree in the stamp.
I made the sentiment to resemble a sign being hung from a tree.
Hope you like my card! It’s definitely not often that I make a masculine card.
Until next time
