It is a gorgeously cool and sunny day here in Melbourne. So nice after the recent heat. Today I have a bold masculine card for you based on this week's Freshly Made #69 sketch from Linda. I was inspired by some of the products I was able to preorder from the new Seasonal Catalogue that commences on 1 February 2013. Lots of yummy things in there to get you inspired. This is Linda's sketch.
The DSP is from a new paper stack called 'Print Poetry', which has a fabulous selection of small prints perfect for card making. I love that there is so little waste with these new paper stacks. The spotted paper with Midnight Muse, Marina Mist, Summer Starfruit, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla caught my eye and I decided to (voluntarily!) make a masculine card. I have paired it with Midnight Muse embossed with the Chevron folder. The embossing folder was brayered with Midnight Muse ink first, which gives an extra dimension to the end result.
The centre frame is from the new 'Just Thinking' single stamp. It has a lovely friendship sentiment in the centre, but not what I wanted for a masculine card, so I have replaced it with one from the 'Word Play' stamp set. The other new item is the big bold silver metal buttons that I have 'threaded' with narrow strips of cardstock.
