Welcome to my second post of today! This time I have created a card for a man. I was inspired by the challenges at:
CAS-ual Fridays - Boys of Summer
Crazy 4 Challenges - Masculine
As You See It - Masculine inspiration board
Your Next Stamp - Sketch and colors
For this card I used 4 of the 5 colors from the Your Next Stamp challenge; I also used their sketch. I used a Champagne card base. I cut a circle out of a square of Dutch Blue, and then ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder. I stamped a tree in Desert Sand and centered the squared over the tree. I affixed it with foam tape to give it some dimension. To make the scallop, I cut circles and then snipped them in half. Then I layered on the sentiment. I meant to make the light blue Glacier, and I just pulled a scrap out of my scrap bag, but I think it's actually Sky or some other light blue. Glacier would be a little greener, and I think I would have liked it better, but it still looks nice. I kept thinking it needed a little something more, and I finally found some twine from the Wooden Mini Medleys. I think it gave it just the right touch!
I hope you are able to join in some of these challenges with me this week!
