I know I never make enough men's cards so I thought I'd make one with the new Deco Trellis dies.
I started with a 7" x 7" cream card blank and layered some matt gold card onto it leaving a small border. I die cut the Deco Trellis outer edge from cream and a lighter shade of pearlescent green card. I then die cut the pattern into the green layer and glued these together. For the next sized layer I used an older die, the I Miss You Inner Topper Die and cut the outer edge in gold then I cut the smaller Deco Trellis outer edge die from cream and a slightly darker shade of green pearlescent card and again cut the patterned die out of the green layer. These were all glued together flat and mounted on 3d foam pads to give a little dimension. The Birthday Wishes is from an older die set, Everyday Sentiments set 2 and this was cut from cream and gold and drop shadowed before being glued to the centre panel.
The border strips were cut from the Just For You Essentials die set out of the darker green and glued in place with a circular 'Big 50' cut out of matt gold the layered onto a cream layering circle to cover the join. The number die is from the Indulgence Pop Up Sentiments - Occasions dies.
As this was a man's card there was nothing to add to finish off so this is a nice straight forward card with plenty of die cutting and layering. I hope you like it,
