Today’s card share is one of the most requested type of cards that I get … Masculine! We’re all looking for “guy” card ideas. I’m keeping it simple because most guys don’t like all that “fu-fu” stuff on their cards anyway. And … it makes it making the card easier for you.
Let’s begin with the Designer Series Paper … I chose the “Sweater Weather” from the Holiday Mini catalog. Most people would probably use the “Chocolate Chip” cardstock which coordinates with the designer paper, but I wanted to highlight the designer paper more by using the “Early Espresso”. Besides, I love the Early Espresso!
I used “Teeny Tiny Wishes” on page 44 of our annual catalog for my birthday greeting … I use this one a lot when I want to stamp in small places. Works great with the Word Window punch or the Oval punch.
Don’t recognize the deer? Well ……………… I found it in a Christmas stamp set! The deer comes from Warmth & Wonder (same stamp set I got the greeting from yesterday). It is a Hostess set and is found in the Holiday catalog. There’s lots of deer hunters in Wisconsin, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong!
I sponged the Crumb Cake with Early espresso to create some dimension, then I added more by using the stampin’ dimensionals to pop up the deer piece and the mat.
I just love the “Burlap Ribbon” from the Holiday catalog. It add so much texture to the card and looks good on a guy card!
Now … how simple was this card to make. Even though I used a Christmas stamp set, I wanted to give you a couple days away from Christmas. Time to reel it in … Let’s just enjoy the autumn for a while.
