It’s Your Day!

This Fall we are experiencing unusually cold and snowy weather in the Midwest and Northeast. The result is we are having gloriously cool temps in Southwest Florida. This weekend we are having temps in the 60’s so our house is open to bring in the fresh air. These are days you wish you could stop time in order to enjoy it more.

Today’s project is a masculine birthday card that was quick easy yet striking in its simplicity. The DSP (Designer Series Paper) does most of the work. The layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches this week.

The images are from Concord & 9th’s Just Because Stamps and Dies. I love leaves and foliage type sets and this is no exception. This set can bring texture to a project as it did here to the inside of the card as well as the envelope flap.

The sentiments are from Avery Elle Banner Bits; I love this font. A few Nuvo Drops are the finishing touch to the front of the card.

The color palette is Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz.

The lighting was not great for the photos due to overcast skies leaving the White card stock to have a bluish tint.

I hope you are having a great weekend. And stop over to see the great projects by the design team at Freshly Made Sketches.
