IC514 - is the wonderful inspiration board Shell Board by Ayumi Matsuokas. Wowza I had no idea there were so many stunning shells. I found this stunning shell: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AcLTzZ...qsWHWpWm5vEg0/ and knew I needed a masculine birthday card so I grabbed this wonderful image from my friend Julia (Crafty Julia) I am not sure who made this stamp but I think it is SU. If you know the stamp set and could provide it that would be great.
The image is heat embossed with black and then I cut it down to mount on a black CS. I tried to keep the image black and cream to mirror the colors in the picture of the shell. The card base is a center open base and I mounted the focal image in the center on the left. I used a great DP that I love for masculine cards from a fun paper pack and that is mounted on the black CS. Finally I finished off with buttons and the Happy birthday stamp.
I look forward to seeing what you create. Thank you for looking!
