I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but I keep forgetting. A friend asked for a custom birthday card for her father-in-law’s 65th birthday. I had some Kaiser craft paper that I thought would be perfect for the project.
I love the soft vintage colours and the hot air balloons are great for a masculine card.
I added some eyelets I had in my stash in a light olive green that matched the paper really well. I often struggle with masculine cards because adding ribbons and flowers are not an option. Eyelets and buttons are a must! for masculine cards.
The card base is Crumb Cake, with a Chocolate Chip mat. I distressed the edges of all the paper with Crumb Cake, and then shadowed the edges of the nestibility with the same ink for the sentiment. I really like the clean lines of this card, and can’t wait to use more of this paper.
