Masculine celebration card

Hi there!

A couple of my favorite challenges provided inspiration for today's card :)

masculine celebration card

Although I seldom make masculine cards, I do enjoy doing so the day I decide to do so. I think it's because it fits my graphic design style ;)

I started off by cutting the word celebrate with my Silhouette (font Folio XBd BT - stretched vertically)

I then blocked and colored portions of the letters with a black marker, and stamped the rest of each letter with an ancient background stamp from Chiswick.

I then colored selected parts with a green Promarker.

The second part of the sentiment was printed on the card base using the font Autumn chant (bold).


Less is more  ~ Celebration . A special congratulations to Chrissie and her amazing team for reaching the wonderful milestone of 300 challenges! May there be many more!

AAA Cards ~ Masculine cards.

Inkspirational challenges  ~ Black & one color.

Just us girls ~ Make the sentiment the focal point.



Thanks for visiting me today!
