When I saw the Altenew Layered Plaid dies I thought they would make great masculine cards. I also really like the new My Favorite Things Wish Die. For this card I used a green, yellow and orange color pallet.
I pulled paper from my scraps to make this card. It is a little brighter than I anticipated, but I like the way it looks. I cut the green base color to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive. I then die cut the plaids from scraps of yellow and orange. I used Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive to adhere them to the cardbase.
Originally I only cut the Wish die with green, but it got lost on the page with how busy the background was, so I die cut it again from the yellow and orange and stacked them slightly offset to see all the colors. I pulled out some Copic Markers to give some color dimension and then added Glossy Accents. This helped the sentiment standout on the card. I stamped the secondary sentiment from CA Designs Birthday Palooza onto yellow cardstock with Altenew Evergreen Ink and used Copic Markers to give it a little ombre effect. I added it under the Wish die cut word with a thin strip of 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and the card was done.
