Ok.....I have to hijack this post for just a minute. I am beyond thrilled to say that I was chosen as a winner of the Birthday category in the Stamping Royalty contest sponsored by Paper Crafts Magazine! I still can't quite believe it.........Thank you Paper Crafts!!! I can't wait to find out who is revealed in the other categories this week!
I know masculine cards are very difficult for many of us but I have a quick and fairly easy card here using the woodgrain image from the newest set On the Strip 2 from Neat & Tangled!! If you don't have this set and it's counterpart, On the Strip, you are missing out! These two sets alone give you ENDLESS options for cardmaking!
Here I've stamped the woodgrain strip with brown ink over and over again until my kraft panel was filled. Every time I would ink the stamp I would move it across just a bit to give it a more realistic look. My sentiment was stamped on a scrap strip using a sentiment from Sketchy Cupcakes. Tucking a few woodgrain buttons under the sentmemt strip was the final touch for my masculine card.
What do you think? Masculine cards.......are they hard or easy for you? Thanks for stopping by!!!
