Clean and Simple

Hi Folks
Thanks for popping by today and hope you are all well.  It is a bank holiday on Monday in the UK and I am really looking forward to this weekend.  My daughter and her fiance are coming round tomorrow for a barbecue before we sit down to watch Eurovision.  Then on Sunday we are going to our local pub as they have a few live bands playing during the afternoon and evening.  Hopefully I will get some crafty time in Monday if I am not too hungover lol.

Today's card is a clean and simple male card using distress ink and a stamp from Papermania.


I started by creating the background colour.  This was simply done with distress ink on white card.  The watches stamp is square but I wanted to put a sentiment in the middle.  I therefore masked off the centre of the stamp and stamped it with memento ink.  Then in the masked area I used a sentiment stamp.  The Happy Birthday is an All Occasion die from Robert Adams.

A really quick but effective male card.  I would love to know what you think.  Thanks for popping by and hope that you all have a good weekend.
