One for the boys

July 25, 2017

You’ve heard me say it before, but I really do struggle to make cards for the males in my life.  I’m a girly, flowery, kind of girl when it comes to card making.  Anyway, for some reason, the ladies at Beachmere like to create cards for the males in their lives.  This card is a kind of mish-mash of lots of ideas presented on Pinterest.  I started by embossing Very Vanilla card using the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder, but only across the bottom half.  I stamped the greeting from the Special Celebrations stamp set onto the top right hand corner using Early Espresso ink and wrapped the top of the embossing with the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Early Espresso card.  I stamped the boots from the Country Livin’ stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Early Espresso ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to move the ink around to give the boots a little colour.  The image is cut out using one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I attached the image to an Early Espresso scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a narrow strip of Very Vanilla card using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I attached a narrow strip of Early Espresso card behind one long edge before attaching to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

Simple but then that’s the kind of card I like.  What about you – do you like clean and simple too?

Bye for now,
