I have a few birthdays coming up in September, so I thought I would cross one off the list with this card. I am entering it in the StampTV challenge to use only the colours white, black and kraft, and the PopUp challenge on "the daily marker".
The pop up challenge was all about lines so I started by stamping the triangle border several times with parallel lines. I didn't have any Kraft paper so I used the cardboard sleeve from my coffee cup and cut some rectangular pieces. I chose a sentiment that was in a long line and matted it and the border lines with black. I thought it was still missing something so I used some chipboard brackets and coloured them black.
