CFC132 - What a Catch!
Time for the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
The challenge is to make a masculine card that uses ribbon and (here's the catch!) no kraft.
Hmmmm. It's ALWAYS a challenge for me to use ribbon, but on a masculine card? Seems like that's the trickier catch for me! lol! I chose navy grosgrain.
I came up with this 'gold medal' award idea for Father's Day. Brickworks is the perfect set for that - lots of great sentiments that can be used for a Father's Day card. I embossed 'good job dad' in gold on brushed gold cardstock and cut it out with a circle nestability. I felt it needed to be bigger so I decided to layer it onto another piece of gold and a slightly larger piece of red. I added hearts from Sands of Time to created more interest.
I could have made this card 4.25x5.5 so that the medal would fit right on the card, but I think it's more fun this way, with the medal sticking out on the top. It will still fit in a regular envelope.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along - the deadline for this challenge is June 20.
