Manly Monday with Pennants

Welcome back to Manly Monday. Please click on the blog name to be taken to the masculine card. Then take a peek below at my card.

My card today is a birthday card for a guy. I stamped and heat embossed the Tim Holtz compass stamp using ink by Versa Mark and gold embossing powder by Stamp N Plus on watercolor cardstock by Ranger. I colored the image in with distress markers, water and a water pen all by Ranger. Then I die cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with Antique Linen distress ink. I cut a little bit larger square out with a green patterned paper and rounded the edges with a Creative Memories corner rounder. The image is adhered to the card front with foam adhesive.

Pennants hanging down on the left are made out of washi tape by We R Memory Keepers, kraft cardstock by Oriental Trading Co that has been crimped with a Fiskars tool, and the last one is brown cardstock from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is by Gina Marie stamped in brown ink by Stampin Up. Patterned paper used on my card are by Provo Craft
