Masculine Card

The Challenge at Impression Obsession is "Let's Hear It For The Boys." My stamps are Three Little Twigs (E8829), Screen Cover-a-Card (CC049) & Follow Your Heart (CL407).  I used my Malachite embossing powder which gives a lovely metallic effect.  I filled in the outline letters with embossing fluid so they would show up more. Had fun adding a couple stitches to the sentiment piece--don't usually do that.  I'm thinking this could be a thank you card for a guy.

So glad you took time to come by.  I always appreciate your comments.

  1. It is funny because now that you say it would be good guy card, which it is, the oval shape and the color reminds me of a football ~ that is pretty cool!

  4. Yep...a perfect guy card! Those twigs are nifty, my SIL would go crazy for them, she loves trees and branchy images. The stitching looks amazing, must remember that!

  7. Good Morning Greta
    You have made a great Man card, I respect everyone who makes them as I do not! Just can't do it.
    There is a warmth and an earthiness here, you have kept it fairly plain but at the same time added that magical bit of texture that makes this card interesting and unique, the stitching is my favourite part.
    Great work.

  13. I like this. It's a simple card but really effective. The twigs look really neat-I saw that stamp and didn't really like it-do now! I like your colors too.
