life is a journey

1/17/21 Winner at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!
2/10/21 Favorite at Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge!

Happy Sunday, everybody! I hope your day is as beautiful as you are! I’ve popped in this morning to share a clean and simple masculine card that I created on Thursday to enter into The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge! Our sponsor this month is Sherry West Art and the challenge is to use black and white plus one color from the inspiration photo, with an optional twist of adding a circle. In addition to black and white, I used tan, and I’m playing the twist with the travel globe as my circle.

This is the photo inspiration we were given. I saw neutral tan, and rather than use kraft cardstock, I colored the tan elements on my card with a Nuvo alcohol marker.

I cut a top folding A2 size card base from Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut a piece of black cardstock at an angle and adhered it to the bottom of the card base. I cut a narrow white strip of cardstock at a very slight angle, colored it with the tan alcohol marker and adhered it across the top of the black cardstock. I die cut the travel globe pieces from white cardstock, colored them with the tan and a black alcohol marker, and assembled it. I applied a STAMPlorations Clear Stickers sentiment to a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the bottom left. I adhered the travel globe on foam dimensionals and added several different sizes of black gemstones to complete the front.

I embellished the inside panel with a wide strip of white cardstock that I colored with the tan alcohol marker along with a narrow strip of black cardstock. I applied another STAMPlorations Clear Stickers sentiment and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving the masculine feel of this!
