Geometric Birthday


I was pleased with the way this card turned out as I was going for a masculine look and I think I nailed it. I used an Impression Obsession Geometric background die, cutting it from GinaK Blue Raspberry cardstock. I adhered it to a white card base, then put a black die-cut frame around the outside done with a Mama Elephant Park Avenue Framed tags die. The sentiment was done with a SNSS stamped sentiment, colored with Copics and die-cut with a MFT fishtail banner from black and white, while the blue panel was cut with a Lil Inker stitched diagonal die. I added a few black enamel stars from Taylored Expressions for the final touch.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

What a fun design and a great one for a masculine being it is done in blue. Change up the colors and it could be for anyone I think.

Great colors and shapes for a masculine card. I do like that font for the bday message with it, too.

This is an awesome background cover die, and looks super with the blue shade. The blue & white, with the touches of black, very striking color combo as well. Also liked the tiny stars tucked around for extra details. TFS & Hugs
