I've been thinking of making a 'best wishes' card for my brother who's going off to Wharton to do his MBA this fall. He's going back to studies after a long hiatus and he's going to be gone for a long while now. I thought something bright and cheery should be a good idea. I wanted it to be a CAS card and masculine. I saw this week's sketch on CAS on Sunday challenge and decided to use their sketch for my card and play along with their challenge too! :-)
This is the first time I'm making a masculine card. I'm not sure if there are any limitations on what kind of colour to use for a masculine card. I definitely knew that pink may not be acceptable as a masculine colour, but I really wanted to use this yellow. So if any of you know more about masculine cards and what should go into making one, please do put in a comment at the end!! :-)
I've used a patterned paper on the top and then cut 4 strips of paper from another pp and stuck it onto the first pp. The row of numbers that you see are from another stack of pp. I used the same pp to add a strip to the inside of the card too! The sentiment is traced and written over with a black ball point pen.
