Happy Birthday - Masculine
Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #365 published a new sketch on Monday, April 21. This weekly challenge will end on Sunday evening, April 26, 2020.
In preparation for upcoming family birthdays, this sketch was just right for my masculine card. The front of the card base was texturized with an embossing folder. Because I have to mail my cards, I kept this design somewhat low profile by adding the four matted strips directly to the card front. The sentiment was stamped and adhered to the die-cut circles. This was added to the card using foam tape. The sketch called for additional embellishment with the sentiment so I added the silver metallic "gems". The inside was decorated with a die-cut deer.
If you enjoy using sketches for your cards, you'll really enjoy visiting the AHSC Blog and playing along with the weekly challenges.
