Hi everyone! Happy Monday – I hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for #87 – Men and Boys (with a twist of a staple or clothespin, or both)! The twist is not mandatory to play but we sure would like to see what you got!
I created a masculine birthday card using papers, focal image and banner sentiment from Polly’s Paper Studio along with a small piece of corrugated paper, a Tim Holtz paper doll and Small Talk Stickers sentiment, and some wooden gears. Of course, I played the twist with the use of a regular staple. ;)
I believe I mentioned last month that the best aspect of being on this design team is no stamping is allowed. It really IS a challenge to intentionally create a project without using any stamps and once I picked out all the elements I wanted to use, I had a great time putting this card together!
I kept the inside simple with just the use of the banner sentiment on a layered panel.
And one last look… I really love how this turned out! And how about that dimension?!
