I'm popping in for just a moment to share a card I made today. I squeezed in some crafty time in between the weekly grocery trip and picking up the kids from school. We raced home so they could play outside. Have to enjoy this warm snap while it lasts. :) And, let's face it -- it's good for all of us if they go outside and play! :)
I made a fun little masculine card. I wanted to use the Colour Q colors from this week and once it was all together - definitely masculine! I was good with that. Never have enough of those, right? I also used the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge to create my design. Little thinking today for me!
Here is my card (rotated sketch):
Once this was all put together, I loved how the colors and geometric pattern had a "retro" feel to it. Happy accident, I can assure you. I can only wish I had that much foresight. :) I stamped the borders on the bottom from Avery Elle's "All Squared Up" stamp set. I stamped them again on scraps of pattern papers in the challenge colors and glued them down. I then added the sentiment from Avery Elle's "Brushed" and added some matching enamel dots. That was all. It was easy, but it did take a while because of cutting all the tiny hexagons. Good brainless activity while I had a few music videos on, grooving.
I am also playing along with AEI[Heart}U's Challenge, Paper Piecing and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, It's A Guy Thing.
