Let's strip is the current challenge over at CASual Fridays. I was working through my July and early August birthday list yesterday addressing and signing cards and realized I
still needed one more masculine card. I pulled out my Simple Stories Awesome 6x6 paper pad (which I had not cut into!) and then remembered the fun prompt at CAS Fridays - to use strips of patterned or coloured paper on your creation.
It came together rather quickly once I decided to cut out stars on my Cricut and layer them to make a focal point. I made four of these so as to have some masculine bday cards in the stash, but didn't put the fabric buttons (We R Memory Keepers) on all of them - I like to keep a few flatter for mailing.
The second version - different stamp, slightly different focal point, no button.
What I used:
papers: Simple Stories - Awesome 6x6 *
stamps: CTMH - Happy Birthday (first sentiment) and Card Chatter - birthdays
Cricut Art Philosophy
buttons: We R Memory Keepers fabric buttons *
