Cardmaking Monday - Week 3


This week I was inspired by the Simon Says Stamp & Show Blog, their weekly challenge is all about stripes.

I made two cards with stripes today, and I made masculine birthday cards, I have many male friends and never seem to have enough of them and male cards aren't that simple either.

The first one I made the background myself with distress ink and tape.

The second one I took some paper that I bought in the very beginning of my crafting days. It quality isn't top and It is very bright and not very trendy any more. But for cards you can still use them. You only need a bit and you have a focal image so ideal to use. Oh and to avoid having it to bright and not so cool, well I put some distress ink all over it, instead of a screamy stripe pattern I got a vintage stripe pattern, very neat and very easy :)

Thank you for reading my blog
