On the Air

Masculine Card

I made this card for a challenge at the card concept blogspot.com.  I was immediately drawn to the coffee color with the beautiful white swirls and the floral bouquet.  However, I wanted to make it more masculine for an upcoming birthday I needed a card for so I added just the green leaves.  I believe it is in the category of Clean and Layered and possibly Clean and Simple.

The challenge inspiration is shown below:

Brushed Birds

All products used are Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise stated. 

I used brushed birds on a card for the Make It Monday challengewhich may be seen on my blog at https://joanne-creativepursuits.blogspot.com/ and wanted to update it to something better.  Thus this is my creation for the 11the PTI Anniversary - day 3.  I am so in love with the new Brushed Birds Stamp Set. I die cut lots from the die and have been playing with various card ideas since. Having a bunch made up in advance makes it go quick as long as your creative mind is quick. Sometimes I take forever to come up with a design idea (sometimes days) and others the creative juices just flow.

SUPPLIES

Stamp Sets:  Banner Sent (text) and Brushed Birds

Inks:  Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Autumn Rose, Lovely Lady, Coca Bean and Onyx Black Versafine

Papers:  White Linen Card Stock and Birch Paper from 2017 Wonderland Holiday Collection
