Hello, welcome back to my blog. My share today is my take on a masculine card. I really struggle with these, but definitely have men in my life that I like to send cards to. I searched Pinterest for this stamp set and found something similar to this. I had the corrugated kraft paper that I hadn't used yet and think it's kind of manly so I knew I wanted to use a layer of it. I am trying to use up my 2014-2016 in color supplies so my card base is Blackberry Bliss with a layer of Mossy Meadow next. I stamped the Elk on Whisper White with Stazon ink and then added some trees from Lovely as a Tree in Mossy Meadow. This layer was mounted on more Blackberry Bliss. I got my greeting from Going Global, stamped in Mossy Meadow on a banner of Whisper White. I sponged the edges with Marina Mist and used the banner punch for the ends. For my sky I used my sponge daubers with Soft Sky, Marina Mist and So Saffron inks. I masked off my sun with a 1 3/8" circle punched from a post-it-note. For my little bow, I cut the surged edges off of the burlap ribbon and then pulled the ribbon apart. I like this look because it has more texture than linen thread and it's thicker. Well, that's all for today. I really appreciate you stopping by!!
Great masculine card, Holly! I have to admit I really like making them, but don't need as many cards for men as I do women.ReplyDelete
