I'm not usually here in the morning on a weekday but it's my boyfriend's birthday today so we've taken the day off. I woke up early and as he's still in the land of nod I thought I'd share the card I made for him.
I really struggle with masculine cards and don't having much in my stash in the way of stamps so I decided to just use masculine colours and some die cuts. I wasn't happy with this at all until I finally stuck everything in position and now I actually really like it.
I cut out the heart and hexagons from some coloured cardstock, not really knowing what to do with them at this stage. I used a stitched line stamp to frame the white cardstock, which was then adhered to some charcoal grey cardstock. It was then just a case of arranging everything until I found a layout I liked. I stamped the sentiment and added some dew drops to finish.
- Coloured Cardstock: Papermania Premium Textured Cardstock
- Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Love Hearts and Honeycomb

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

That's all from me today, I've no idea what we're up to today but a good start would be to go and wake him up! :)
Take care and have a happy Tuesday.
