Party Like a 'Boss

Here's a simple, masculine birthday card inspired by elements found in Dawn's Monday Mood Board #15. I incorporated the kraft, black, and gold color scheme along with some bold patterns to put this one together.

I used a piece of textured shelf liner inked with brown ink to get the irregular dotted pattern on the kraft panel.  Once that was stamped, I adhered a strip of black and cream chevron tape above it.  One of the sentiments from the WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments 1 set is stamped just above the tape.  The sentiment is  embossed with gold embossing powder for a super shiny look.  A trio of cork circles are scattered around the sentiment to complete the design.

Materials Used:
Strictly Sentiments 1 stamp set (WPlus9); Encore Gold ink, Memento Rich Cocoa ink (Tsukineko); Tea Dye Distress ink, gold embossing powder (Ranger); Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); decorative tape (Michaels); cork circles; shelf liner
