As promised, I do have a project to share today. I've been working on masculine cards lately. It's a "weakness" of mind, not keeping those on hand, but I always seem to need them. So I'm working on creating more masculine projects to share and for classes. For today's project, I used the Guy Greetings Photopolymer Set that first appeared in the 2015 Occasions Catalog earlier this year. I was giddy when I saw it carried over to the new big catalog, as it's a great, versatile set. It has nautical, classic, automobile, and businessman elements--a great set for creating a variety of masculine cards.
For this card, I used the car stamp and the "to a classic" sentiment. I paired the stamp with the Typeset Specialty DSP, which has lots of masculine patterns. I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to create a splattered background, and used the Circles Framelits to cut out the shapes.
This is a super simple card to create, but perfect for any guy as they don't care about the bells & whistles. Have you snatched up this set yet? If not, scoop it and you'll be entered in my Mystery Hostess Contest! :) Thanks for stopping by. See you back tomorrow for another fun project!
