Your Creative Connection 110: Hey Dude

600 pixels

Hey crafty people! It's time for another global Your Creative Connection Showcase #YCC110. This month our theme is Hey Dude, as in masculine cards. This was perfect timing for me, as one of my son's needed a birthday card for a mate this week. He likes to fish and also hang out at the river, so I wanted to incorporate water somehow. This new DSP (the blue waves one) is from Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (all the links for products I have used today are at the end of the post), and was perfect to represent the ocean.

I used one of the 4 patterns of the Sahara Sand DSP from the new 6x6" Neutrals paper pack as the sand. The stamped image is from A Good Man stamp set which I'm so glad has carried over to this years 2020 Annual Catalogue, because it's a favourite of mine to watercolour. I just picked up the colours from the DSP (Pacific Point and Sahara Sand) and added in Crumb Cake for some watercolouring, and Early Espresso for the greeting.

I've used a new greeting set on this card. It's called Many Mates, and I love it! It's new in this year's 2020 Annual Catalogue and has sentiments for the outside and inside of cards, plus great modern fonts. It's perfect for a wide variety of cards. I used the 'I'm glad your were born' sentiment inside the card as it seemed like the kind of random thing teen boys might jokingly say to each other.
