Morning card makers, it's Tuesday so its time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This time our theme is :-
Here's my take on the challenge.
I think the autumnal colours make this highly suitable for a male recipient.
I used part of a panel left over from my gelli plate experiments and used this lovely silhouette stamp Happy Days from Uniko repeat stamped around the edge in autumnal colours. I did add some texture with a dot stamp and gold ink to each spray but it doesn't really show up unless you look very closely indeed.
My sentiment is also from Uniko, Birthday Wishes, which I stamped in very dark brown. The finished panel was trimmed down and added flat to an off-white A6 top folding card.
Whilst I had my Happy days set out I decided to make another as I wanted to enter Darnell's Twofer challenge. The layout was based on Sharon's card at LIM and the panel insert was a scrap leftover from this card using my Uniko Nature's Treasures Stencil over another gelli plate print so I can also enter over at CAS Mix Up! I do love it when challenges come together like that.
As I was CASeing Sharon's card, I used the layout, and the gold foliage as my inspiration as it was a masculine card, I left the flowers out. This time I stamped and embossed the leafy sprig with gold EP, not that it shows particularly well in the photo, then fussy cut it. My background was made using an Avery Elle stitched snowdrift die and the snippet of stenciled gelli plate print was added in the gap. A simple thank you was stamped on matching off-white card and embossed with the same gold EP. popping the sprig of foliage up on pads but kept the sentiment flat.
So two masculine cards using one theme, leftovers and a few challenges as inspiration!
