Abstract birthday card

Hi there!

It's been way too long since I made a masculine birthday card. So... when I realized there are some challenges going on at the moment which could work perfectly for a 'man' card, I grabbed the opportunity to make this card:







I used:

  • Cutting file by Hero Arts in the Silhouette store called graphic pattern 1 ~ Design ID #11169
  • Silhouette cameo 
  • Black Sharpie to color 3 selected rectangles
  • Sentiment designed in the  Silhouette studio . Font used : DK More or Less


There are so many ways you can use this file! Changing colors and techniques will give a different look every time! I decided to use the frame as a guide to place all the cut pieces and removed it after placing the pieces. Everything was cut twice and layered for dimension.


Sharing my card at:

Less is more ~ Monochrome

CASology ~ Abstract

Seize the birthday  ~ Anything goes


                                               
Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

Holy cow, as a guy card this is completely amazing! And you still have the frame to use on something else. Fabulous!

Awesome "abstract" depiction. Grey, black and white is always a winning combo. Male or female would love this card. Congrats on your HM at CASology.
