I can't decide if I like this card or not. My idea was to make a masculine sympathy card using this patterned paper I got in a swap (no idea who makes it). I also wanted to use templates from one of my Design Tool Kits from HOTP. This is what I ended up with, and I can't decide if I like it or not. What do you think? Does it need something additional? If so, what? Your ideas are welcome!
Other than tracing and cutting out these shapes using my templates, I didn't do a lot. The stamped sentiment (from HOTP) and shaped pieces are all finished with faux stitching using a brown pen. The ribbon is a lovely furry texture - something I've had in my stash for quite awhile. I didn't want to add the bulk of brads (mailing issues) so punched a couple of circles from the darker portion of the background paper (it's heavy like card stock) and colored them to look like brads.
