"I need a card for a guy," she said. Huh? You want me to make a card without glitter or flowers? Impossible! You need to understand, I struggle with cards for the guys. I'm much more comfortable working with soft colors and flowers than with "manly" colors and images. So when a customer asked me to create a card for her grandson, I got a little nervous. Quite honestly, I never really paid much attention to "Best Guy Ever" in the Suite Sentiments set, but that's what she asked for.
After a little Pinterest "research", ideas started forming and once I got started, I couldn't stop!
This is the first card I designed, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. Incidentally, this is the one my customer chose from the three that I showed her.
The combination of Smoky Slate, Night of Navy and Whisper White is stunning. Throw in a dash of Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder, and you have winner! The designer paper is a Sale-a-Bration freebie called Carried Away (#143608).
Stamps and die-cuts are from the Lift Me Up Bundle. All the balloons are stamped in Night of Navy ink. I cut the circle from the DSP using a my Stitched Shapes Framelits.
Three Metallic Enamel Shapes frame BEST. GUY. EVER.
Only a few more days until Sale-a-Bration is over until next year...March 31 is your last chance to get any of the great free items including the Carried Away Designer Series Paper. Don't wait - once they're gone, they're gone forever!
