It's the Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home! This month they are focusing on masculine cards in preparation for Father's Day. Their color theme is brown.
I decided to try to make a woodgrain background. I dont have a stamp or a textured embossing plate, so I scored lines and then just dragged several different shades of brown across the front.
Then, I made a banner and sewed the edges a bit with a zig-zag stitch. My sentiment and stars are all stamped with a stamp set I found at Wal Mart for $1. Sometimes I can find some goodies there. Anyway, I fussy cut the stars, and adhered them down. Some on foam squares.
I felt like it still needed something else, so I also added three eyelets. I like the metal element it brings to the card.
I like it when I can get two challenges into one card. This one also fits Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge. They are challenging us to make Clean and Simple cards.
Have a great Wednesday!
