Masculine Birthday {SSSC226}

Hi there! It's time for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch! This week's sketch is a great basic and looks terrific both vertically and horizontally. I flipped it on the horizontal and made a birthday card for my brother-in-law.

I used some new soon-to-be-released stamps and Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The colors I used are Primitve White, Steel Grey, and Natural. You will find links to all of the products I used on my card at the end of this post.

Here is my card:


Here you can see the dimension I achieved by die-cutting "Happy" five times. I say this often, but dimension is your friend.


The finished inside: (sorry for the weird lighting on this card)


Here is this week's sketch:


Don't forget to check out the samples from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team:

Thanks for stopping by!

What a handsome card Jacks!! Love how you added pattern to the banner and flag elements.

LOVE this card, Jackie! Awesome design and colors. I agree that stacking words/letters/die cuts creates a great, dimensional effect. Rather than cutting multiple layers to raise them, I often cut a couple layers of thicker chipboard or fun foam. Either works great and if you want to make the sides of the stack the same as the top, just ink 'em up. :)
