The sketch today has SO many amazing possibilities as demonstrated by the gorgeous samples by the MFT Design Team here at Kim's blog.
I went very masculine with my creation today as I need a card for my lovely Father-In-Law for his birthday. I've used my favorite papers from Basic Grey that I always reach for when I need these types of cards.
I used SU! Bravo Burgundy as my card base, along with some navy and light blue cardstock for my matting purposes. I used one of my very favorite MFT stamp set "go-tos" Finishing Flourishes. I chose a flourish and inked it in Pure Poppy Brilliance Ink. I then heat set it with clear embossing powder. For a bit of interest, I twisted the flourish around as I stamped rather than having it facing the same way each time.
In lieu of the banner style that the sketch suggests, I took a blank tag and ran it through my die cutting machine using the Wonky Scallop Border Die-namics with my Sizzix. I then added my sentiment in black Colorbox ink and again, heat set it with clear embossing powder. I tied a bit of navy ribbon at the end where the original tag string had been.
I kept my interior very simple inking a different flourish in Grey SU! ink and adding a matching scrap of plaid BG paper.
I, once again, have to thank all of you for your very sweet and kind comments that you left me during Teaser Time. MFT has the best customers, fans and friends!!
