It's been a while since I last joined a Simply Less is More Challenge. Since I had to make a birthday card for my hubby, I thought I'd scour the net for inspiration. LIM Challenge 53 is perfect - aqua is one of my favourite colours and would pass for a masculine card.
As an aside, Happy Birthday to LIM, too. woohoo.
Here's the card:
Stampin up products used.
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
Stamps: A to Z, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Punch: Full Heart
Embossing folder: Square Lattice
Others: Cherry Cobbler Baker's twine
This sketch is practically the same as LIM Challenge 52 which I almost did but ran out of time (haha). The strip of aqua card was embossed and then more aqua ink was sponged on to highlight the texture (I love aqua). I stamped AtoZ on white card, punched and sponged the edges as well. This was stuck on with dimensionals for extra height. The Happy birthday was stamped on white card as well.
I think the twine picks up the red to highlight the teeny sentiment without looking too girly. I'm really quite happy with how this turned out.
