Over the weekend, I decided I need to create more masculine cards on a regular basis. Thus, most Mondays here on the blog will showcase masculine themed cards. For me, masculine and sympathy cards are two types that I shy away from. I’m going to challenge myself this year to stop dragging my feet and make a conscious effort to create more of these! Hopefully, at least some of my attempts will be an inspiration to you!
For today’s card, I CASE’d a card (gotta start somewhere, don’t I?!) from the Featured Stamper Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. This is the card I CASE’d (by jentimko). I changed out the white card base and bright, cheery colors for a kraft card base and masculine colors.
|Stamps: SU (Fabulous Phrases)
Ink: SU (Not Quite Navy)
Paper: Paper Trey cardstock (Kraft), Echo Park DP (Times & Seasons), SU CS (Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso)
Accessories: SU button, misc. twine, SU jewelry tag punch, SU circle punches, foam dots, embossing folder
I used various sized circle punches to punch out a mix of circles. These were glued and layered on top of a panel of kraft cardstock and then run through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I used some basic twine and a corduroy button to keep things masculine.
Have yourself a marvelous little Monday!
