Sketch Challenge for StampTV

Good morning!

I'm the hostess for the StampTV sketch challenge this week and wanted to share my project with you this morning on my blog. I'll share the other card I made with my sketch tomorrow - but I already showed it in the challenge thread that you can find here.

I pulled out Basic Grey's Offbeat paper pack & embellishments to make this birthday card. I was TRYING to make it masculine... do you think I pulled it off? I have such a hard time with masculine cards because a card just doesn't feel finished unless it has ribbon, buttons & pierced scallops somewhere on it! lol!

Here's a closeup of the golf bag paper pieced with that lovely Basic Grey paper...

I stamped the golf bag from Rupa's King of the Grill stamp set 3 times in Black Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. A few copic markers helped to define the layers and details. Then, I took my detail scissors and cut each layer out.

The 'happy birthday!' sentiment comes from GinaK's Tag, You're it! stamp set. Then, I took some white grosgrain ribbon, the 'dad' sentiment from Rupa's King of the Grill and my black Stazon ink pad and made my own specialized ribbon! I used the same ribbon for the inside...

To help seal the white ribbon that I taped across the front corner of the card, I attached another piece of Offbeat paper. It helps to finish the card off too. Here's the full view of the inside...

I hope you can join us for the challenge - it runs until next Thursday.

Have a great day!

Great card!! Masculine cards are so very hard. I love the way that it looks.

You have inspired me to begin decorating the insides of my cards -- not always, but I am trying! This card for Dad is great -- love all the pains you took making it! It really shows that you care.
