Life in the fast lane
Good morning, it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and our theme is 'man cards'. OK, not everyone's favourite...but we do always need to make them! I usually quite enjoy making masculine themed cards as I enjoy a challenge and I have to think a bit harder about what to make...you can't just colour something pretty and add flowers to it...but this time I struggled and two ended up in the bin before I ended up with this one which I quite like...even though it looks wonky in the photograph (it isn't :))
I used a sheet of kraft based dp for the background, and stamped my image on the plain reverse of it. I stamped the image twice with versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I used a stitched rectangle dies to cut the whole image, then a smaller die to cut part of the second image, matted it onto blue card and adhered it in place with sticky tabs. The sentiment banner is also stamped and embossed and raised with sticky pads. I added some punched stars and twine to embellish.
My lovely teamies have come up with some great masculine designs, so please pop over here for some inspiration, then why not make a card and play along, it's great to have a few masculine themed cards in your stash for those guys in your life inconsiderate enough to have birthdays
Thanks for visiting
Enjoy the weekend!
