Hi friends! Since we have a 5th week in August, Just Us Girls has its Wild Card challenge. That means the hostess can choose any challenge she wants. Nancy is our hostess and she's given us a sketch to follow. We haven't had a sketch challenge in a while here at JUGs!
I needed a 30th birthday card for a guy. My best friend's son is celebrating his 30th birthday tomorrow, and my friend and her husband are throwing a big party for him today. It should be a fun party! So making guy cards (for me) is challenging. Add to it an additional challenge and you have a card that took a while to make! I chose this color palette from a card I did over a year ago. I started by cutting thin strips of kraft, Baja breeze, and marina mist cardstock and adhered them to a piece of scrap cardstock. Then I die cut the numbers from that piece then matted it on another larger number. I die cut the word and suffix from vintage cream. The kraft piece was embossed with a folder and then cut apart. The vanilla cardstock beneath was splattered with some distress inks. The kraft pieces were popped up with fun foam and the numbers with dimensional tape.
You can see more inspiration from the JUGs design team on the JUGs blog and our current guest, Karen Bourke.
Thanks for stopping by.
