Prize ~ 1 of 5 sets offered by the sponsor


This is my second card for today using some of the Naturally Cool digital papers from Decosse Dynamite Doodles, one of our generous sponsors this week, to make a CAS A5 top folding masculine birthday card.

I have combined some digital elements to create the background the dark grey patterned paper and some dark grey digital staples.  I printed the panel on A5 textured white cardstock.  It looks like the grey panel is stapled to the white panel.  Next came the paper for the sentiment.  I printed the darkest paper from the set on textured white cardstock then die cut the "happy birthday" sentiment.  I adhered the front panel to an A5 top folding card base to complete the card.


The staples are really cool too, the shading really gives them dimension and it looks like they are piercing the different patterned papers to secure them together in place.  This time I carefully added Glossy Accents to each staple and they look even more awesome.
These digital papers have a lovely pattern and texture.


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
