Just before I start my post I just wanted to share our fantastic news - Stampin' Up! won Papercraft Brand and Retail of the Year for 2017 here in the UK. What fantastic news - especially when you bear in mind we are not strictly a retailer and you can only purchase from your fabulous local Independent Demonstrator!
Once again I have turned to Wetlands for my masculine card. I love this set because its not obviously a masculine set and therefore very versatile. But I think it lends itself to masculine cards without being in your face - if you get my meaning!
I used Early Espresso cardstock for the base and the Designer Series Paper is from the gorgeous Falling in Love from the Spring/Summer catalogue. Not probably your first thought for male cards as it has a lot of pink in it but that's the beauty of our Designer Series Paper - they are double sided and I loved the neutral background on this paper. The opposite side is quite pink as you can see from this little picture below.
I used our Watercolour Pencils and a blender pen to colour in the goose and marker pens to stamp the ferns with the two colours. I edged the top of the DSP and the greeting with a touch of Tangerine Tango and Rose Red ink just to give a hint of a sunset. A touch of the Burlap Ribbon, one of my favourites and the Decorative Punch label for the sentiment completed this card. This was all made with one stamp set!
Thank for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love to hear from you and it does make blogging worth while.
iF YOU LOVE TO CRAFT AND LIVE IN MY AREA WHY NOT COME ALONG TO MY CLASSES. THEY ARE HELD DURING THE DAY AND IN THE EVENINGS AND ARE GREAT FUN. ALL THESE LADIES WERE BEGINNERS JUST A MONTH AGO AND ALL THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T CRAFT. BUT WITH STAMPIN' UP! YOU REALLY CAN.
