Since you all know that for the longest time I have been struggling with making "MAN" cards, so I took the opportunity and made one...as I thought the perfect embellishment for a a man card would be brads, that's what I've used. I don't own very many stamp sets that are just for "men" but I do have this month new release from Our Daily Bread Designs and it is called "Dad". How perfect is that? It has a bunch of general words such as Dad, Grandpa, Son, Happy Birthday and some scriptures. So for my card I used the Happy Birthday and the Proverbs 16:9 verse (I used it on the inside).
Are you ready to see my super simple card?
Here we go
Paper: PTI Kraft, Dark Chocolate
Stamps: ODBD Dad
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chalk Box Chestnut Roan
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Forest Branches, pewter brads, braiding cord
What do you think? Does this look like an awesome card for dad or any man in your life.? After I embossed the BG it looked a little "plain" so I took a sponge and rubbed some chalk in in Chestnut Roan over the embossing and also the edges of the sentiment. Instant interest ;D!!
