|Be the Sailboat|
Happy April Fool's Day! I hope that you haven't fallen victim to someone's foolery today. I use to be good at pranking people. I would get my older sister all the time. However, I haven't done that in a while. I definitely didn't have time today, because as I mentioned a bit ago, I started a new job and I'm still adjusting my sails. I am also training to be President of our local Rotary group in 2015. It is so much work that goes into this role, but I am looking forward to it.
Today, I am sharing another masculine card with you that is inspired by the dp and the sentiment at the same time. I saw this paper on sale at a crop I went to recently and immediately thought of Create with TLC's "Be sets." I love these sets. They are truly my favorite because they are perfect "stand alones" on cards. Male cards don't require all the embellishments and frills that female cards do so these Be sets work well.
I created this card using a 6x6 kraft cardstock base and layered on this yummy deep red cardstock. I then layered on the dp that has these beautiful red and blue sailboats on them and an antique finish. I emobossed this really cool blue cardstock that has a sparkle sheen to it and matted it behind and across the card. I also used a coordinating dp to put behind the sentiment which was matted on red cardstock and cut out using Spellbinder's Wonky rectangle diecut. As I stated previously, the sentiment is from Create with TLC's Be Set and it comes with an image as well. Head over to the store and check them out.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
Now get to creating...
Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
