Today I’m sharing the card I made for my brother’s birthday recently. As I’ve mentioned before, he’s not a big fan of coloured images and likes his cards fairly simple. So, this is how it turned out:
I based the design on an old sketch from the Deconstructed Sketch archives. I have been wanting to play with one of the layout for a while – it’s just a shame this isn’t the current sketch so I can’t enter the challenge!
For the circles, I cut three identical circles from Kraft card, then embossed with different embossing circles to add some texture. The dark blue mat was cut from a piece of corrugated card that I forgot was lurking in my stash and the piece of blue spotted ribbon was also an offcut found in the depths of my ribbon box. The sentiment was printed directly onto a piece of felt-marked card that was an offcut from some Order of Service booklets I made a while back. For the little dots, I simply cut three different sized circles from blue cardstock and added a little Glossy Accents to the top to make them shiny!
Hey presto! One birthday card for my little brother 🙂
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
