Vintage Masculine...




Hi!  Just a quick post as I really need to sit down comfortably.  I fell this morning on the sidewalk holding my little Chihuahua puppy and just haven't felt like fabulous.  No worries, Pixie is safe - I am another story LOL.

I am so excited to share this card with you.  I wanted a really masculine card - nothing cutesy.  So I whipped this card up (by whipped, I mean another 2 hour card *sigh*).  I brought out my inks and distressed everything PLUS I also dusted off my acrylic stamps to make the sentiment background and to ink the bottom of the pattern paper (do you see the "manly" deer?).  If only I were this creative all the time when it came to masculine cards.

Card Ingredients:  Inkadinkadoo The Great Outdoors stamps;  My Mind's Eye papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Labels 18 and Oval Nesties;  CraftSmart Chocolate and Gold inks;  We R Memory Keepers Cream Soda baker's twine;  vintage button.  Tools:  sewing machine, ink sponges.

I made this birthday card for the following challenges:   If the Shoe Fits - try something new (inking around a Nestie);  Bearly Mine - for the boys;  Creative Craft Challenges - going minimalistic;  Going Grey - sentiment as main focus;  Deep Ocean Challenge - vintage.

Enjoy your Sunday evening.  See you all again tomorrow!
