Masked Stripes Card

Do you ever wake up thinking about a card design? Before I went to bed last night I read this weeks challenge at The Paper Players is for a One Layer Card. Since I've only made a few one layer cards, I can use all the dream power I can get. When I woke up this morning I had a card idea using masked stripes. I decided to put a nice frame around my sentiment to play along with the Robyn's Fetish challenge to Put a Frame Around It. I'm also entering my Masked Stripes Card into the Anything Goes challenge at Make It Monday. It took a little time to measure and cut the masking strips of tape. Once I had my masks in place I sponged on Coastal Cabana ink. Before I removed my sentiment mask, I used a basic black Stampin' Write marker to outline my framed box. The Sassy Salutations sentiment is stamped using Raspberry Ripple ink and I added four punched black circles to anchor the corners of the sentiment frame. I think this card will work well as a masculine thank you card or you could adds some frills and make it girly too. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!
