Masculine Card

Good morning.  Well after two fabulous days it looks like the weather is set to change. Still we must enjoy it while it's here.

Today's card is a one for the male of the species.  Not always the easiest to make cards for I must confess.

My Card


Recipe
A5 card base - dark green card stock Jelly Bean Crafts
gold mirri card
Leaf word stamp - Hero Arts
maple leaf punch
Spellbinders foliage die
green and gold ribbon from stash

I've just realised I forgot to add the pearl to the base of the leaf trio!  I used a clear ink pad and detail gold embossing powder to the word stamp. A little more mirri card than I would generally use but I thought the dark card needed something to brighten it up a little.

Anyway that's it from me. Take care and enjoy your day.

  4. Super card Christine, always difficult to make, especially if there isn't a hobby or interest, but this one will certainly fit the bill. Love the leafy design, Kate x

  6. This works beautifully Christine. I like the contrast between the dark green card and the gold mirri card and your leaf theme is perfect for those tricky male card designs.

  9. Hi Christine
    Superb and very effective. Even the mirror card doesn't look OTT as the dark green calms it. Lovely design.
    Best wishes.
