Good evening, friends. It's been a busy weekend for me, but I found some time to work on getting some cards done and posted. For this card I chose a few challenges that would work in making a masculine card. I am always needing more guy cards and this one will be easy to duplicate in the future. I used the Addicted to CAS challenge #105 as inspiration since it is to use "wood". The challenge can be found here. I also used the Crazy 4 Challenges #374 which is to use your sentiment as a focal point. The link to that challenge is here.
To make this card, I started with a kraft cardstock card. I needed a good layout for the card so I chose a sketch from the CTMH Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 page 45 pattern 25. I love these books because they give you the measurements for each piece. No guess work involved which cuts a lot of time. I have all their how to books that deal with cards. For paper I cut pieces from the "Hello Lovely" and "Rustic Home Fundamentals" collections from CTMH. The greeting is stamped in Black dye ink from CTMH. I edged all the pieces with Ranger Distress Walnut Stain ink using my Ranger distress tool. The greeting piece is popped up with pop dots. It needed a little something else so I attached some black epoxy bubbles from CTMH as shown. And that's it. A nice CAS style masculine card for my stash.
Thanks for stopping by,
