I recently bought the DP set Adventure Bound, specifically to make cards for men for my other DT challenge blog, The Male a Room, but I thought it would work well with this sketch. Having had a quick look on the internet I took some inspiration from there and....
This is one whole sheet of the DP, isn't it fab? I added the Happy sentiment cut out using the Hello You thinlet die and instead of a banner I,ve used twine, twisted three times. The Bithday part of the sentiment is from Best Dad Ever and is stamped on vellum which I have torn and secured with a small brad. Layered onto Kraft my card is finished.
Two more views.
The second card, made using the sketch and the same DP set follows the sketch a little more closely. I started by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment from Big Day onto a different piece of DP
I made the banner using the set Happy Congratulations and as the twine was still on the table I added a couple of bits at the end to carry the bunting off the edge slightly. After stamping and punching out the lanterns I added a touch of Dazzling Details to add a shimmer effect on them and used foam pads to add dimension.
