Manly Monday Train

Welcome back to Manly Monday. Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers that allowed me to share their card last week. Having the younger and older posts was awesome to have double the inspiration and also depending on who you make masculine cards for you could focus on one post more than the other. 

So without further ado here are this week's cards. Please click on the blog name to be directed to the masculine card.

What did I do Today? {scroll down}

So for my card I used Simon Says Stamp challenge as my inspiration plus I had this new stamp set that needed to be used. I stamped the train onto white cardstock with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder by myStamp Box. Then train stamp is by Tim Holtz/Ranger Industries. I then matted the stamped image onto black cardstock. I dry embossed the grey cardstock  with a Darice embossing folder. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment by Sweet Stamp Shop in the same way as above onto a Lifestyle Crafts die. All of my cardstock is by Recollections.

And that's it. One thing I like about making masculine cards is there aren't a lot of steps. 

Thanks for stopping by.
