Ahem....cough....I have an announcement to make...I made a card...with a male theme! I am only hoping that I can do Claire and Anne-Marie proud with this one, they seem to be the Queen's of Testosterone fuelled cards.
I proudly selected an Angel Company stamp from the new Vintage rides set for the card...thanks go to my BFF for these, she has good taste.
I stamped the image, along with matching banner and sentiment from the same set, onto coloured cardstock. I coloured only choice bits with my Sharpies in order to keep it muted.
I then mounted it directly onto a strip of ribbon that I had placed horizontally on the card. It actually looks like the plane is floating.
I drew the clouds free hand onto some blue cardstock, cut them out and then ran them through the cuttlebug in the clockworks embossing folder. Black ink finished them off nicely.
I really am a sucker for detail on a card, so I adhered two buttons in the bottom left corner, tying one off with some scrap netting thread...hoarder sickness I tell you...hoarder sickness..it pays! And has done so twice this week already :)
I must proudly say that the entire card's paper came out of my scrap stash! how do you like that? I'm quite chuffed :) I finished the card off with a bit of faux stitching off to the side and made doubly sure the edges were heavily inked.
Ok, so what's the verdict? did I pass the Masculine card test? Holding thumbs that I did! Have a great Wednesday everyone :) And don't forget about the anticipated AiFactory Blog hop on Friday! Lots of goodies to be won!
