#TGIFC298 Sketch Challenge

 Hello and welcome,

I'm excited to share with you my latest project a masculine card and I've entered my creation in the latest TGIF Sketch Challenge. I just love the layout of the sketch which the design team have chosen and it makes creating a card so much easier! 

I came across Narelle Farrugia's seashell card on Instagram and I just had to case it for a friend's masculine birthday card. This challenge was perfect timing.

For my card I started with a panel of Whisper White Cardstock, sponged Pool Party Ink with the Blending Brush and then ran it through die cutting machine with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. This folder is amazing, it reminds me of seawater and so much depth to the Cardstock. I ran my Paper Snips along the edge of the Cardstock and curled back a corner to give it more character. 

The new Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle is in the Stampin' Up! January to June 2021 Mini Catalogue and it was perfect for my masculine card. The colours for the seashells are Sahara Sand, Cinnamon Cider and Misty Moonlight for the starfish. I also added a little sponging to the seashells and starfish using the Blending Brushes. 

Using the Pretty Perennials for the sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight onto Whisper White Cardstock and I fussy cut out the word happy. Layering the Whisper White strip of Cardstock over a strip of Misty Moonlight and then my card was complete.
