Good morning, ColourQ fans! Are you ready for a new challenge? Today's inspiration comes from a colorful stack of mixing bowls that are welcome to come and live in my kitchen. Aren't they fun?
These colors are perfect for a guy card, so I conjured up something preppy and masculine for a male friend's upcoming birthday. It's low on the frills but still packs a colorful punch, don't you think?
I started with a Basic Gray card base, then added a panel debossed with PTI's Argyle impression plate. A strip of white cardstock is stamped with a sentiment from Birthday Basics in gray (though every time I use this ink I realize I need to get one in a darker shade).
The white strip was given some texture with the Linen & Canvas impression plate. I added two gray rhinestones next to the sentiment--hopefully my guy friend appreciates a little bling!
The colored strips were simply trimmed at different lengths and adhered with foam dots to give the card some dimension, while still keeping it relatively flat for mailing.
