Today I've got a card to share with you which I made for my brother who celebrated his birthday this weekend. I always find masculine cards a real struggle and this time I tried something very different and went in a geographical direction.
I'm not sure how I feel about this one, it seems a bit too busy or maybe I've used too many colours. I would love to know what you think :)
I cut a square panel slightly smaller than the card base which I used as my main stamping area. First I stamped the diagonal stripes along the right edge, and then stamped the grungy dots in the background. Before stamping the rest of the panel I stamped and die cut the 'brother' sentiment and used low tack tape to hold this in place while I continued to stamp around it. I then added the various arrows and the happy birthday sentiment. I finished off by using 3D foam to adhere the sentiment strip and added some Doodlebug Sprinkles to complete it.

Thanks for popping by today. I'm gutted I haven't found any time for any more crafting this weekend. I had a BBQ at my brother's house yesterday and today has just flown by doing this and that!
I hope those of you in the UK have had a lovely bank holiday and that wherever you are you had a lovely weekend. I hope to see you very soon.
