Khaki Royal Diagonal Birthday

Khaki and royal (or navy) is a go to color combination for me when working on masculine cards.

I used the diagonal cutting plate on the khaki cardstock, and I had every intention in taking the pieces out and adding royal stripes into the khaki frame. BUT, I didn’t use a shim when cutting, and the pieces did not cut all the way through. As Bob Ross used to say, “we don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”

Supplies: Stamp – Reverse Confetti, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Sahara Sand, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn, cutting plate – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.
