Sugar Nellie Knight Card For Hubby

Here is the card I made for my lovely hubby's birthday.

It is also my entry for this week's Truly Scrumptious blog challenge, which consists of a sketch and the added challenge of 'Flower Power'. I used a little artistic licence and used Fleur de Lys for my flowers as it's a masculine-themed card.

I decided to use the Sugar Nellie Knight Luca stamp for this card. I stamped it out twice onto Craft Planet Silver Satin card using Jet Black Staz-On ink and cut the images out. The feather and shield quadrants were stamped onto patterned papers from the HOTP Classic Cardmakers Creative pack and attached to the shield image.

The image was matted onto ovals of white card and silver satin card embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamond in the Rough folder.

Two shields were cut out and decorated with papers from the Classic Creative pack, along with a matching panel.

The Fleur de Lys were stamped using morsel stamps from the See D's Vintage Collection stamp set in the corners of the white panel and on the shields. The sentiment was computer-generated.
