Masculine Inspiration with Place in Time!

Happy Monday to you!

Today I'm hosting over at ScrapTownLady to share a card that I created using the scraps left over from my Graphic 45 - Place In Time Calendar page for July. If you haven't had a chance to see that and want to, click here.

Do you get inspired by a certain element(s) of a collection? I know I sure do and when I find a special piece or two I sometimes save those for either cards or another project. The inspiration for this card came from the vintage ballplayer and the Home Run tag. I thought it would be so much fun to use this collection to create a masculine card.

Some details:

Papers for the chevron border are from the Graphic 45 collection, French Country. I elevated my oval frame with some foam dots for dimension. The glassine bag softens the feel and a touch of lace trim is a nice contrast with the stars and stripes. I added a touch of Glossy Accents to my small blue star to vary the hues a bit.

The other product that inspired me for this is the BluePrints 2 Die-Namics Set by My Favorite Things.  Check this out:

I used the base rectangle to cut my card base, the oval to nest my sentiment and tag into. The tag ended strip I used for my embellishment in the upper left corner of the card. What a fun concept!  The details here are fabulous, check out those decorative cut marks.
