A Black and Orange Birthday Card

PE: Honorable Mention at The Male Room Challenge

The Male Room Challenge Honorable Mention

Hello! I just finished making this card, and couldn’t wait to share it! 🙂 I was inspired by this card by Erin Lee. I love the simple geometry and the fact that she has used simple colors to provide so much  definition to her card. I tried CASEing it! Here’s my version of her card –

A Black and Orange Birthday CardI first drew some lines on a black card stock panel, and retraced them on a white card stock panel. I then adhered washi tape I chose on these panels. I then cut the window from the black card stock panel and adhered the washi tape panels using the cut black panels for placement.

A Black and Orange Birthday Card (close up)I then die cut the sentiment from the black panel using Cole’s ABCs from Lawn Fawn. I also cut out a circle using Quickutz Nesting Circles from We R Memory Keepers and stamped ‘to’ using Basic Font from Fiskars and Memento Tangelo ink.

Before foam mounting the black panels on the card base, I adhered a small piece of card stock colored using YR16 Copic marker and adhered it on the card base just below the die cut. Finally I adhered the ‘to’ circle.

That’s it! Clean and simple! 🙂 I am submitting this card to the following challenges –
