I saw a project similar to this on one of Liz's Paper Loft blog posts
and knew I had to give it a try.
I had gotten the Suburbia cart, but had yet to use it,
so off to the craft room I went!
I love to send cards that are able to be displayed,
so I chose the center-step fold for this design.
Starting with a camel cardstock for the base,
I added mats of khaki green and birthday number papers
to provide my image backdrop.
I added a punched border to the left-hand side,
and then used the negative cuts from that for embellishments on
both the inside and outside of the card.
The typewriter, man, briefcase, and champagne bottle are all
cuts from Suburbia.
The mats and images were all embossed to add texture,
while the images are popped for dimension.
The inside "happy birthday" is from ACY,
and the little doodles that you see are the negative cuts from the border punch.
Additional matting, more embossing, and a personal sentiment round out this project.
I am pleased with my own take on this scraplifted design
and hope our friend will enjoy it too.
I will enter this in the following challenges:
