Manly Monday

This week for our Manly Monday post I have two great masculine cards to share. Plus I'm kind of excited to share my card with you today. It is one I've been holding on to since December and I think it's pretty safe to post it by now.



For my card today I used THIS golf bag stamp by Stamp N Plus. I heat embossed it using ink by Versa Mark and embossing powder by Ranger (copper) and then die cut it out using a Spellbinders die. The cardstock is by Recollections. The second layer to my focal image is this specialty paper that I got for a buck at a scrapbook show a long time ago. There are three different colors and they are in the shape of a circle. The circle is too big to use on my cards and so I die cut it using a Spellbinders scallop circle die. Normally I would say no scallop circles for manly cards but for some reason I'm OK with it on this card. The next layer is a recycled item. My friend gave me a pile of upholstery fabric samples. I thought to myself this would make a great background. It has great texture but isn't raised up so much that it needs extra postage. 
For the rest of my card I used patterned paper by My Mind's Eye and brown cardstock by Three Bugs in a Rug. The first part of my sentiment is a K an Co sticker again on Recollections cardstock. The second part is comprised of circle punched shapes that I tucked half of it under the cardstock. The letter stickers are so old that I don't know what company produces them.

That's all I have for you today. It would be great to see you again next week.

  3. This would work well in softer more feminine colours for a female also. But it's spot on perfect for a man as you have done it.

    Thanks for sharing with us
