Flourishes Easy Breezy Challenge
I needed to make a masculine birthday card for someone, so I decided to use the Easy Breezy Flourishes challenge to make a card that takes no more than 10 minutes to create. With a guys' card, the less fuss the better. I only have 2 flourishes stamp sets (Poppy & Sweet Pea) so neither of those were appropriate for a man's card :) I used Trendy trees for the image and used a combination of punches and Nesties to layer it in the window. When the card is closed, the scallops are perfectly aligned, although it doesn't appear that way when it's open. The sentiment was done with an Imaginisce stamp and daubers. I added a bit of piercing and had a card done in actually less than 10 minutes. I thought of a tree when I saw the word "breezy" so this was my inspiration for this challenge.
