My first card made in my new craft studio! I'm just so excited! I cannot believe how much easier it is to find things, move around, do things, EVERYTHING. Such a joy!
This card is for my oldest son's 20th birthday. He is out in Oklahoma, so we will miss being able to celebrate with him. So, I wanted to make something grown up masculine but also with something that is him. He has always been an animal/nature lover so the wolf is perfect for him.
Lately I have been very obsessed with everything Taylored Expressions. So, I decided to use their sketch challenge for this week for the card. It is clean and simple and works great for masculine cards.Then, over at The Paper Players, the challenge was to make a masculine card with clean and simple lines. Finally, my colors were inspired by the color challenge at City Crafter.
As you can see the card is very clean and sleek. I embossed the black background to give more depth to the card. Also for more depth, I crimped the kraft scalloped border and added more kraft behind the sentiment, which I punched the sides of with the scallop punch and also crimped. I couldn't decide whether to put any embellishments along the cloth ribbon. I finally chose one brad to put in the center underneath the sentiment and added a metal round paper clip for a little extra man touch.
