Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Yahoo… It’s Thursday and the weekend is fast approaching! I’m looking forward to getting more stamping done.
Much to do this weekend … my clubs start in September and I have to design their projects, and get their schedules out this weekend. I will also be sending the announcement for our annual Fall Retreat this weekend! It’s so much fun 🙂
Today I want to take a you back to nature with the “Walk on the Wild Side” stamp set. I thought it was time to share another “Man Card”. This is a nice stamp set, and I will be sure to share more projects using this set with you.
I used the “Sweater Weather” Designer Series paper for our background. I love using the plaids for masculine cards, but I think this one would work great on a boys birthday card as well.
Although one of the colors listed on this paper is “Chocolate Chip” … I chose to use the “Early Espresso” as my base color. I thought it made all the colors on the paper “pop” more.
To give it the real “manly” look, I added a banner using the Burlap Ribbon … oh my gosh, I love this stuff! You can use it for your cards, scrapbook pages and to tie bows on everything fall!
Stampin’ Tips for today’s card:
1. Remember when coloring direct to rubber, don’t use the tip of the marker but the sides … it colors your image faster, and you won’t destroy your tips.
2. The Burlap Ribbon was adhered with the Mini Glue Dots… they work great. You could also use the “sticky strip” but the glue dots were so easy to use.
