Frostwood Lodge Masculine Birthday UDI57

This week’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge Design Team colors were dark and dreary.  Inspired by a child’s plaid shirt and clothing, the challenge immediately lent itself to a masculine card.

LOL… my DH’s birthday is right around the corner, so I kind of had birthday cards on my mind.  These are not his favorite colors (or mine) but they definitely make a great guy’s card!  This week’s challenge colors:

      • Crumb Cake
      • Basic Gray
      • Soft Suede
      • Very Vanilla
      • Chocolate Chip

Combined with the Delightful Dozen and Faith in Nature stamp sets, I guess it turned out OK… what do you think?UDI57, Sharon_Field, udi color challenges, well worn, frostwood lodge, delightful dozen, faith in nature, brads, simply scored, ribbon, paper ribbon

DSP was mostly Frostwood Lodge… had to get a little bit of color in there with a bit of Well Worn Designer Series Paper (DSP)…UDI57, Sharon_Field, udi color challenges, well worn, frostwood lodge, delightful dozen, faith in nature, brads, simply scored, ribbon, paper ribbonThe Delightful Dozen Birthday sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink DTP (direct to paper) onto the faux birch  Frostwood Lodge DSP. 

After cutting a 1/2” strip of Well Worn DSP, I used the new Simply Scored Board to score the DSP at 3/4”, 1/4”, 1/2” and 1/4” intervals (repeating the sequence for the length of the paper).  When attaching to the card face using Multipurpose Adhesive, the adhesive was only placed on the 3/4” lengths… which allowed a sort of free form pop up in the center.UDI57, Sharon_Field, udi color challenges, well worn, frostwood lodge, delightful dozen, faith in nature, brads, simply scored, ribbon, paper ribbon

The leaf from the Faith in Nature stamp set was stamped and ‘fussy cut’, popped, and pinned with a vintage mini safety pin to knotted hemp twine.  Stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, the edges were sponged with Soft Suede Classic Ink.

I like the way you "tied" the leaf to the hemp. This is a very manly card. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is an awesome guy-card, but I don't think I could pull it together like you did. Great work!
