Tap Tap Tap men’s card using a sketch & Stampin Up products

I made a card for a male friend in the US.  I find it quite hard to make mens card but with this stamp set it was a breeze!
taptaptap from stampin upI went to town with this card, I stamped the draw the line stamp (the notebook lines) in the background by masking off the typewriter.  I added a spiral border punch to make it look like notepaper and coloured in the typewriter with an aqua painter and added some crystal effects on the typewriter keys.  I used the note stamp to create the flag as shown in the sketch below and then the ticket duo builder punch to make a dumpy ticket and added the ‘hi’ sentiment.  The little mini stapler from stampin up added a utilitarian feel to the card but it was all looking rather black and grey so the arrows from the wooden elements added some dimension and a different colour focus too!

Here is the sketch which inspired me….
