Masculine cards are something that I truly struggle with, and a bunch of other crafters must as well because it's one of my most requested designs! I grabbed a few new Erin Lee Creative release items and gave it a shot!
I masked off the center of the new Quilted Stencil with some masking paper and blended on some dark and light brown inks. I love how easy it is to change the look of this stencil! I stamped the mountain range from the Stay Wild Stamp Set and gave it just a bit of Copic coloring - not too much! I wanted to keep the card simple!
I finished the card by adding the Shine Word Die cut from Gold Holographic Cardstock and stamping a sentiment from the Stay Wild Stamp Set in brown ink.

Hi, Lynnea - Agreed. Men's cards are a challenge. I always end up w/ a fishing theme, a mountain/river theme, a lighthouse/sailboat theme or a geometric design. You've kind of combined my go-tos by putting a mountain inside a geometric design. I like your card a lot and if I win, maybe I can try to replicate it.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing!
