Big Thanks

A Great Big Thanks - Masculine

This card was made for a masculine recipient. I like using aqua and brown together so that's what I went with. I admit I made this "by the seat of my pants" meaning I did not have a plan. The card is 1/4" narrower and 1/4" shorter than A2 size and on a single piece of cardstock. Because it was more narrow, I was able to nudge the frame for the sentiment off of the right edge slightly.  I was satisfied with the basic design so a few weeks later I made another for a birthday but placed it on a proper card base in brown, matted with aqua and lined inside with vanilla.
