No. 1 Father

January sees a lot of family birthdays for me, and most of them are men. I’ve always struggled for inspiration for male birthday cards but thankfully Cardabilities have a wonderful sketch on their challenge blog and I managed to produce this great card using their design.

No 1 Father Card

The thing I love most about Cardabilities’ sketches, is that they are a great way to use up all those little bits and pieces of paper and card that are left over from previous projects.  For this card I used papers from Trimcraft’s Green Stack, Echo Park, Papermania’s Portobello Road, and Hot of the Press. The main topper is by Kanban.

All of the patterned papers are layered onto black card to add definition, and the topper and No. 1 flag are raised up with foam pads.

  1. Wow! I really love it. Great composition, fabulous dark colors. Like every detail on your card.

    Thank you for playing with us at Cardabilities this time.
    Hugs, Marzena DT
