Make a WishUpdate: This card qualified for the "Top Three" at AHSC!
This is a masculine birthday card for a family member. For inspiration I used the Atlantic Hearts Challenge, Sketch #96, using a favorite color combination. I also entered the card into the challenge at Retro Sketches.
My card was in the Top Three for the Atlantic Hearts Challenge, Sketch #96!
I wanted the card to have depth and tried to show it by taking the photo at an angle in the sun. The image and sentiment banner are popped up with foam tape. The sentiment banner was curled using a bone folder. By design, the card was placed to the left on the card base with a strip of brown showing on the right as demonstrated in another photo below. The inside is embellished with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock stamped similarly to the front of the card.
