Thanks with Warmth and Cheer
You can never have too many thank you cards, especially masculine ones. Doesn’t it always seem that when you need a thank you card for a guy, all that you have left are pink cards with flowers on them? Why is that? This card is one for the gents! I love the plaid patterns in the Warmth and Cheer Designer Paper and they make awesome masculine cards for fall or winter.
This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #264!
I changed from the sketch just a little bit. My circle is a little smaller because I also have a leaf taking up space there.
- Cut and fold Basic Black card base.
- Cut a strip of Warmth and Cheer designer Series paper 1-1/2″ (3.7 cm) wide and the same height as the card.
- Die cut or punch out a circle from Basic Black. Mine was about 1-1/4″ (3.1 cm) in diameter.
- Use the Botanical Builders Thinlit Dies (or any of several cool leaf dies) to cut a leaf out of Wild Wasabi cardstock. Use a sponge to apply Garden Green ink to the edges of the leaf.
- Die cut a sentiment from Crumb Cake cardstock using the Hello You Thinlits.
- Arrange all the pieces and adhere them to the card base.
- Don’t forget to finish the inside of your card with a layer of lighter color cardstock, because it is really hard to write a message on black!
Manly Color Combination
This color combination is inspired by the woods, army camouflage, and all things manly. It’s a monochromatic color scheme with tints and shades of one color: green. Everything else is a neutral color.
