You Are the Best

You Are the Best card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea DesignsHere's my card for this month's SugarPea Designs Mix It Up challenge.  I mixed the sketch and color elements from the icy looking inspiration photo together for my design.

I paired two patterned papers on the cardfront--one plaid and one dotted.  The plaid panel was matted with silver cardstock before adhering it to the pale gray card base.  I added the narrow gray on gray dotted pattern paper strip over the plaid panel, then adhered a narrow pale blue cardstock strip across the cardfront.  For the sentiment, I die cut the word "you" from both silver cardstock and craft foam.  After layering the pieces for dimension, I adhered them above the pale blue strip.  The "are the best" from SPD's You set was stamped beneath the die cut word in gray pigment ink to complete the sentiment.  I though about adding some enamel dots, but in the end, left it clean and simple, which is perfect for a masculine design.

Materials Used:
You stamp set, You die (SugarPea Designs); Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Grout Gray cardstock (My Favorite Things); Mist cardstock (Reverse Confetti); Recollections Silver cardstock (Michaels); Smokey Shadow patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Perfectly Plaid-Winter 6x6 paper pad (Lawn Fawn); craft foam
