- Make a project for " That special Man in your life ".
- Or Make a project with the " Sketch ".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Masculine card using the above Sketch ".
Well, when I first made this card, I felt like it needed something more. But after wandering around the forests and hills of Virginia this week, I think it is just fine! My husband loves enjoying nature, and so I think he will enjoy this card. I began with a search for designer paper...intending to use Woodland Walk (I think that's the name) but couldn't find it. No worries...Lisa used it on her amazing card! Having little time to spare before I finished packing, I came across an older retired fall package of DSP. No clue what the name is, but that is where I got the color palette. My card base is soft suede. The lower squares (including the more mustard layer) are dsp. For the top square, I stamped the leaves from Lovely as a Tree in always artichoke on whisper white. Using my blender pen, I colored with retired mellow moss ink. Then I embossed it with the square lattice impressions folder in my Big Shot, and sponged with both soft suede and always artichoke, then popped up with dimensionals. I added the sentiment from (Trusty) Teeny Tiny Wishes with the usual word window and modern label punches. A big designer button and baker's twine finish it off.
I hope you join us this week for this great challenge! Masculine cards can be tricky, but we all need them sometime! Be sure to use keyword FM60 in your online gallery. See the other DT cards on the Friday Mashup blog! http://www.fridaymashup.com/
