PTI’s January 2013 Blog Hop…Card #2

by cbaptista on 01/25/2013

This is the second card I made for PTI’s January 2013 Blog Hop:

This card came together rather quickly…unusual for me.  I’m such a slow crafter.  I think it came together fast because I knew I wanted to make a masculine card.  The black background challenge lends to it nicely, I thought.  Then it wasn’t difficult choosing “masculine” elements (read: I don’t have many to choose from! lol).

What I did: I stamped the herringbone pattern in VersaMark ink on the black paper and adhered it onto a kraft card base.  Then adhered a strip of dark gray paper over it and the star border over that.  I stamped the “Celebrating Your Birthday” sentiment in black ink onto a light gray Mat Stack 1.  The little stars are from the star border die as well.  I dabbed some glitter Stickles onto those to make it sparkle a little bit.

Thanks for stopping by!
