Double Trouble 58 - Masculine Birthday Card

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge #58! 

The elements for this challenge are shown in the grid below. The condensed version is to create a masculine project (does not have to be Father's Day related), use a round item and link to Use Your Stuff challenge. 

I am always needing masculine birthday cards... this was the perfect opportunity to create another one as Thing 1 requires a masculine project.

I used an old card pattern from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2. The three panels were cut from Cedar and Pine (Christmas paper) and a retired Mix-In paper pack. I stamped the sentiment - which is a mini stamp that is at least 10 years old - in Intense Black and then coloured it using 4 shades of green, blending them into each other to create an ombre appearance on the letters. The sentiment was die cut with a stitched circle die and the circle background is gold foil paper. I used some black glitter paper for the cross piece and placed a ribbon on top of that. The same ribbon was used to create a bow at the side of the sentiment. I added a few gold gems and mounted the sentiment on foam tape. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this week's theme.

Great masculine card, Alyson! I especially like your selection of patterned papers. The font used on your sentiment is just right, too.

Excellent masculine card, love the choice of colors and your coloring of the sentiment and the big black ribbon... handsome but pretty too.

Neat layout/papers, and I love the gold on your card, just enough to set off the green and black ribbon!
