This card is all Stampin’ Up!. It’s for my Father-In-Law’s birthday in May. I know, I get behind so quickly that I really need to make cards whenever I can;) I actually bought this stamp set last year and never got to making the card for him:( As I said, I get behind very quickly. Friday Mashup had a wonderful sketch that I thought would work well with my idea. Here is their sketch for this week. You can follow the sketch, use the Mother of Pearl technique, or “Mash it up” and use both.
I tried putting some clouds in my Not Quite Navy “sky” with Whisper White Craft ink and a sponge. Not too sure how this has worked out. I think I need to find some instructions somewhere. lol I used a cut off piece off white to use the decorative strip with an Antique Brad. I don’t think men really care for ribbons. lol The printed paper was printed on my home printer. It’s digital paper from Stampin’ Up’ called Well Worn. One of my favorite “male” papers.
I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by today:) I actually made two cards with this sketch. The second card can be found on my “other” blog. I hope you can come by again soon:)
