Fusion Challenge - Hypothesis #11

I'm playing again this week in the Fusion Challenge. My first instinct was to go with a Fusion of the sketch and inspiration image but when I finally sat down to create my card I ultimately opted to go with the inspiration photo only. 
I liked the CAS design on the sketch and decided that I would try to keep my design CAS and masculine. I didn't have any deep, jewel toned plaids in my paper stash (well at least not any I could find) but thought these light plaids were a nice choice for summer.
Here's a photo of the inside of the card. I created a duplex stock by using light blue card stock firmly glued to a kraft. I don't do this often but thought it added a little bit of a surprise element to the design since you naturally expect a kraft color inside too.

I also made a coordinated plaid liner that you can see in the foreground for this A2 envelope. Again it's not something I would normally do for OWH cards but I like the extra finishing touch it gives.

If you haven't checked out the Fusion Challenge yet, go have a look. Voting takes place on Wednesday and a new challenge starts on Friday.

Happy Crafting!

A lovely card. ;-) I like the plaid DP strips with that bold sentiment. Love that you added the blue on the inside - great touch! Thank you for joining our Fusion challenge this week. ;-)
