If you tend to notice imperfections then you should probably not look at my cards since I do not cut straight (even with a trimmer) or, as seen below, staple evenly, lol. Somehow, I don’t think Brandon will mind that so much. My inspiration was the colors of the Seattle Seahawks uniforms which are blue, green and white. The first attempt didn’t work at all. I don’t know what I was thinking with the background. It just too busy and autumn-like for me.
So, I took it apart and kept the elements that did work for me – the blue decorative label, ribbon and green stamped letters but they needed to POP to be seen. So I punched out an edged circle and stamped that. Now it pops:-) Changing the background paper makes all of the difference in the world. It’s a keeper – no it’s a sender!
Wonder if Brandon will think about the Seattle Seahawks when he gets this? Doubt it. It’s not like it’s his favorite team (or mine) but it was a great inspiration. By the time Brandon gets out of basic, I may be a lot better making masculine cards!
