A Male Card

April 23, 2012

I made this card using the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 this week.  I haven’t used much of the Well Worn Designer Series Paper but I love the colours and I think it works well for a masculine card.

I attached the piece of Well Worn Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Whisper White card stock and then wrapped the piece with 3/8″ Twill Tape.  I attached an Early Expresso button to the Twill Tape using Linen Thread and tied a knot.   I used my Mat Pack and Paper Piercer to attach three Early Expresso brads in the upper right hand corner.  This piece was then attached to scored and folded Not Quite Navy card stock.   I stamped the image from the Seaworthy stamp set using Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock and then attached it to Cajun Craze card stock.  The image panel is attached to the card fron using dimensionals.

I really like the way this card turned out, perhaps I should make male cards more often.

What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    Kris, this is a wonderful combination of the Well Worn Designer Paper and the Seaworthy Stamp. Love what you have done with them both. Male cards are so hard to do a times.

    I really like your card. Male cards are really hard. I have also been looking for something to do with my Well Worn paper. I may have to case this for my dad’s birthday next month. Thanks so much for sharing!

    The Well Worn DP is perfect for your nautical themed card. Your twill and button trim add the perfect texture.

    Great card, Kris! I find it hard to come up with designs for male cards, but you really nail them!
