I’m sharing another typographic card today, featuring the Concord & 9th Double Cut Alphabet die set.
I went for a striking colour combination of black and white with gold for this card, and ended up making several of them.
I die cut the letters for ‘happy birthday’ from the MFT Black and White basics paper pack. I love this paper pack which features only black and white graphic prints – no need to ration the black and white papers from other packs now!
I also die cut the letters from gold metallic cardstock. I’ll use the gold letter outlines for this card and can keep the rest of the letters for another card.
I used a cover die for the background, so I could add detail to the white card base, without adding anymore colour. Any cover dies would work well for this.
I arranged the letters on the card, adhering them with liquid glue. I decided against adding any finishing touches, as I wanted the letters to be the focus.
I think these cards work great for masculine birthdays, with the big bold sentiment taking centre stage.
Below is another card I made, with a different slant on the same technique.
