I loved the sketch last weekend from Stampin’ Gals Gone wild and couldn’t get it out of my head, so I created this card which has a much more masculine feel.
I embossed Tempting Turquoise card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Black card. I attached a narrow strip of card behind the diagonal edge of the Basic Black Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. I stamped the “hats” from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (I think I am addicted to these framelits but who can blame me they are so gorgeous). I attached the image to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using one of the Layering Oval Framelits Dies (can’t have the Stitched Shapes Framelits without the Layering Framelits to match!). The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
I kept it simple inside the card by attaching a strip of Basic Black card behind a narrow piece of Tempting Turquoise card which I embossed, once more using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
At first I wasn’t sure that the colours in this card worked, but the longer it sits on my desk the more I like it. So much so, that this one will be part of my class this week at Beachmere.
I’d love to know what you think.
