Popping in with a fun card to share today. A couple of weeks ago my son went to a Sweet 16 Masquerade Ball Birthday Party. He had to dress up in a suit and tie as well as don a mask for this very special party. Naturally, he needed to take the perfect card for the occasion and I had the perfect stamp and die set to create this special card!
I am using Verve's Masquerade stamp set and Mask die set. I started with some fun papers from Echo Park. I die cut the mask and stamped the image. I inked the entire mask with versa mark and clear embossed. I layered the mask on a and slightly lowered it to give some added dimension and depth without looking dark like a shadow. I love the way it makes the whole image pop. Next, I stamped the mask handle in black and die cut the handle from the Mask die set. I embossed the handle in a pale pink. It sits nicely inside the blacked stamped image to give an outline around the handle for some added depth and dimension.
I stamped the word "Sweet" from Verve's Sweet Treats stamp set. I added the numbers from a die cut in white for contrast and to keep the card fun and light. I stamped the Birthday sentiment from Verve's Birthday to You Plain Jane stamp. I added a few clear gems along with Verve's Pink Sparkle Sequin Mix. I finished the card with a feather....not the whole feather....just a touch.
I included a picture of my son, Dawson. It is hard to get him still at this age to take pictures. I was able to snap a few pictures before he left for the party. I actually got him to strike a serious mask pose for me. He is 15 and already almost 6'2" tall. He is already something I will never be.....tall. It was difficult to take the shot. I did not want him to squat for me.....lol. He did have a great time at the party!
I am playing along with Simon's Monday Challenge (Anything Goes).
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
