I am still working on filling up a box of cards to send to Operation Write Home and I needed some more masculine birthday cards. I think we all have lots of feminine ones, lol! This striped paper from the Festival of Prints DSP stack just seemed perfect for this theme!
This is the first version I made. The striped paper is the only DSP, the rest is stamped and sponged.
I turned the design on it's side for this version, it works well either way!
- Stamps: The Open Sea, Curly Cute
- Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
- Paper: Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP stack
- Other: Sponge, Early Espresso ¼" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, 2½" Circle punch, Essentials paper piercing pack, paper piercer and piercing mat, 1" Corner punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, buttons, White Baker's Twine, Glue Dots
Then on the inside I did some torn edge sponging and stamping. Love this simple technique :)
