As you have seen, H2H Challenge Blog does challenges twice a month. If you haven’t played along yet, you really should! The prompts are great, and the artwork is pretty splendid as well! The second challenge for April is Flora or Fauna. That leaves so many different options! You can do almost anything with this!
So, I decided to go with Flora. My card is more of a masculine card, even though it has flowers and butterflies on it. (Guys do actually like flowers, too!)
This is called a Bookbinding Card. It is sealed at the far right, with a ‘lip’. (as opposed to the normal fold) It gives you a smaller space to write on the inside, but that’s ok too, sometimes!
I stamped on the charcoal piece with white craft ink. Once dried, it comes to this nice almost faded look that I think fits and pairs well with the B&T from In Full Bloom.
The sentiment is heat embossed in white powder, so that it would stand out from the card.
I really like how this card turned out! Simple and elegant, and can be used for so many reasons, just by changing the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping in to see my card! I hope you will leave a comment below, for me!
Then, hop over to the H2H Challenge Blog and play along!
Keep being Crafty!
