Happy Birthday Dad!

Welcome to another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday! This is our last sketch by Teri Anderson for the month of August and we’ve had so much fun with her great sketches!

This week we have another fun graphic-type sketch! The fun thing is that you can really make these circles anything you want them to be and give it a different take.


Here’s how I interpreted this sketch. I combined Grunge with Tough Guy for this guy friendly card.

The diamond plate, wood grain and “happy birthday” are found in Grunge, and the “dad” sentiment is from Tough Guy. The background was embossed with the Distressed Sizzix embossing plate. To make the denim piece I took a bashful blue cardstock circle and swiped my Not Quite Navy ink pad vertically and then horizontally to give it that denim look.

Make sure to check out the SSD blog for the rest of the team and our guests’ cards!
