Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Hop - Anything Goes!
Hi crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by my blog. The Brutus Monroe team is blog hopping today, and the theme is "Anything Goes!" I have been dying to work with the new foils and clear toner sheets that Brutus Monroe just released. It's also on purpose that I'm sharing a birthday card, because I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my amazing sister Melanie. I love her to pieces and today is her birthday!
This card is technically very simple but packs a visual punch for the recipient! I chose to work with the Silver Sketch Foil and the Crosshatch clear toner sheet. I trimmed a piece of the clear toner sheet down and ran it through my laminator. I die cut the frame from Raven cardstock, and attached the foiled toner sheet to the back of the window. I cut a slightly larger piece of Raven cardstock and piled some black and silver sequins in the middle. I lined the back of the window with foam tape and attached it over the sequin pile.
I stamped the sentiment onto Alabaster cardstock with Raven detail ink, and fussy cut around the shape with my detail scissors. I attached it to the card front, and ta-da! That was it! The new sketch foil is amazing! The silver sketch has a rainbow effect depending on how the light is hitting it. I like that this card could really be used for anyone, and I struggle sometimes to make cards that could go to male family members or friends.
