Two posts in one day! Not usual for me - I like to spread them out but I wanted to get this card posted to the Freshly Made Sketches challenge before the challenge closed.
When I saw this sketch I didn't have to think too long about what I wanted to do or what paper to use. It immediately shouted out DAKOTA and BURLAP! Any chance to use burlap on a project is a PLUS for me! 2nd note to self - order more Burlap! I still have plenty but I always have that fear I'll run out before I get more - it's comforting to me to know I have enough backup on hand.
So, I pulled out my Dakota paper pack (X7157B) and Burlap and went to work. My Dad's birthday is coming up soon and I thought the colors of the Dakota paper (Barn Red, Outdoor Denim and Whisper) would make a nice 'manly' card. Here is what I came up with:
I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge (Z1790) to cut the star and the paisley round shape. The paisley shape is glued to a coordinating dimensional element. I stamped the star with the stamp set that is exclusive to the Dakota Workshop on the Go (G1047) kit. "Birthday Wishes" is from the set Just a Number (D1514). The Outdoor Blue twine is from the Baker's Twine Harvest Assortment (Z1751). Durables Round Studs (Z1706) 'round' out the finished look of the card!
Here is a closer view of the Just A Number stamp set. It's great for Birthday cards! You can order this set along with the other items used in this card from my website HERE.
