I started with a sketch:
I always need birthday cards and enjoy doing mancards. I used a colour palette of Coffee and Cream, and my new embossing folder and new sentiment stamp.
I distressed the edges and sanded the embossing randomly (distressing is one of my favourite techniques), then layered it over gauze. The ticket on brown card and sentiment on cream card are stamped with different coloured inks to add interest and variation. The base card is matt metallic gold.
Ticket die: Couture Creations
Ticket stamp: Invoke Arts
Sentiment stamp: Mama Elephant
Also: gauze, metal brad
