I always have a tough time with guy cards, so last night I set out to just suck it up and make one :) This also satisfies a challenge at 365 Cards for making an Anniversary or Engagement Congrats card!
The background is a left-over brayered panel I had demonstrated at one of my Hostess Club meetings. I thought it looked like a night sky and finally came up with this idea. I LOVE these trees from this stamp set... they were the main reason I purchased it!
Stamps: Camping, Floral Dingbats (retiring! ack! me so sad), Trendy Greetings
Paper: Kraft & White UltraSmooth cs, & misc. brown cs
Ink: Champagne Dazzle VersaMark, Burnt Umber, Starry Night, Prussian Blue, Reflection Blue, Cote d'Azure, & Violete Palettes
Other: pop dots, foam tape, Cutterbee Piercing tool, Autumn Leaves Glimmer Mist, cotton trim
I knew I couldn't layer up with ribbons and girly buttons, so this was definitely a toughie :) I probably should have layered the sentiment up separately, but it would have covered the lovely Dazzle medallion. I spritzed the Glimmer Mist on the base, and it looks so cool in real life... a lovely brown-copper shade of shimmery goodness.
What do you think?
