Make it Masculine
Hi there crafty friends, On Saturday we got together to work on masculine cards. As we all know, men's and boys cards can often be quite tricky. While it's easy to add a ribbon or gems, it's much more difficult to embellish a card destined for the men in our lives. We created three very different cards that focus on different techniques that can be used for many other designs. The first card we made used he Stampin Up Wetlands stamp set. We created the scene by masking off the top section and blended Dapper Denim ink with a Stampin sponge. Blending the ocean horizon line in blue and using Crumb Cake ink along the base and Center for the sand. After removing the mask, blend a little ink around the top third for the sky. Using Memento in Tuxedo Black, stamp the seagulls in the Center of the beach / water. Colour the seagulls on their bellies with a Crumb Cake Stampin Write Marker as well as their shadows. We stamped the greeting in the top right corner and placed a length or silver ribbon along the left hand side of the card. Then the card was mounted using Dimensionals onto Crumb Cake card stock base.
