Moon Lake Framed Birthday

Hi there,

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to struggle with making masculine cards. So, when I saw the Moon Lake set in our current Occasions Catalogue, I knew it would be one of my go to sets for masculine cards.

Here’s a birthday card I’ve made with the duck & reeds image from the set…

What do you think? The focal image is framed with the simple frame technique. You can find the tutorial for this frame here.

I stamped the image with Jet Black Stazon. I did a quick watercolour wash using Pool Party ink to create the water & sky background. Then using the Blender Pen and my ink pads, I coloured in the duck & reeds.

Here’s a close up look of the Birthday sentiment with the linen thread loops…

The linen thread loops are easy to do – a single glue dot, then just make random loops with your linen thread, attaching sections of the thread to the glue dot every so often.

I hope you liked my project. This stamp set is very versatile and I definitely think it’s a handy set to have in your set for masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by today to check out my project. Until next time, happy stamping!   🙂
