I must admit, this sketch had me stumped at first, but then I realized I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend of ours who turned 50, and it all came together. I don't know about you, but I always find it easier to create a card when I have a purpose rather than creating just to make something. Know what I mean?!?
I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then I used the large square from Blueprints 3 Die-namics to cut out the Nightshift Blue layer. I love that this layers perfectly with the large square from Blueprints 7 Die-namics, which I used to cut out the Fuse Green background layer. I used the Plaid Builder Background and Fuse Green Premium Dye Ink to add pattern to the background layer.
The talk bubble element was cut from Smooth White using the Blueprints 7 Die-namics. The sentiment is from Document It - Rock On and I stamped it with Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink. I used another element from Blueprints 7 Die-namics to cut out the Wild Cherry vertical strip.
I used the 5 and 0 from Big Numbers Die-namics to cut out the Nightshift Blue numbers for the main panel. The Kraft square was cut out using the Blueprints 7 Die-namics then I stamped it with the Textile Backgrounds using Kraft Premium Dye Ink. The Peek-a-Boo Chevrons Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the small Sno Cone chevrons.
Then I used the star from Blueprints 4 Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone star. I added a couple of masculine touches with a brad and some staples.
On the inside I used the Birthday Sentiments to stamp a simple sentiment with Kraft Premium Dye Ink and Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink.
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on the MFT Blog.
