I'm switching gears today and focusing on the clean and graphic style of design.
My first card features Epic Dad stamps and companion die, Ink Splats and Backgrounds & Borders 4. The bold patterns combined with the graphic nature of the sentiments in Epic Dad are perfect for clean and graphic cards.
Monochromatic cards are a great choice for men.
I started by stamping the card base with Backgrounds & Borders 4. Then I got out my Oatmeal Cardstock and had some fun with the Epic Dad stamps and dies. I added a bit of shimmer to the crown using a Wink of Stella pen. I know guys don't like a ton of glitter, but you can't have a crown that doesn't shine!
My next card is more appropriate for the tween/teen scene rather than Dad.
This card was so much fun to make! I didn't really fuss over placement, I just stamped.
Again, I played with some new-to-me color combinations from the PURE COLOR Original 10 Collection; Lake House, Sweet Gelato and Silver Lining paired with black. Though I liked the simple stamping, I thought it needed a bit more. Silver embossing, washi tape and an enamel dot finished off this card perfectly.
I hope you are inspired to make some clean and graphic cards. See you tomorrow when I'm back to share more cards from the April/May release!
