Good morning! Every Monday, I post a masculine card here at Crafting Clare's Paper Moments and today I've been inspired by One Layer Wednesday, where the challenge is to make a card that is personal to the recipient. On Saturday, we went to the 60th birthday party of a friend of ours. He is a talented musician and I thought I'd create a piece for him using the Music Notes wheel. Come and see:
I used my favourite Confetti card stock for this card, masking off a large rectangle with post-it notes to create a layered image in. I inked up the Music Notes wheel with versamark first and clear embossed it, and then wheeled Not Quite Navy music over the top. The background was sponged in using Safari Sand, Wild Wasabi and Not Quite Navy inks. Finally I added black notes and a sentiment using Staz-on ink.
Here's a close up so that you can see the layered effect you get when stamping over a heat embossed background. This is the design I went with for our friend but I did experiment with few others. This one is the best of them:
It has been made in a similar way using Confetti White card stock this time and shades of blue ink. I created the image in a masked off strip this time and scored lines above and below it.
You may recognise this embellishment from last week's card. It looks quite different using a smaller gold eyelet and a knot of gold elastic cord. I stamped the sentiment in Stazon ink on vellum.
