Hi everyone, welcome back this week to another great challenge.
Before I get started on my card, I wanted to announce the winner of my giveaway for last weeks blog entry. Unless I am mistaken, there were only two individuals that posted they came to my YouTube Channel from the blog. So good luck! You have a 50/50 chance of winning!
I wrote the two names on slips of paper, threw them in a bowl & had my dog Ivy choose the person. Whoever was stuck to her nose was the winner. I know, scientific, right?
And the winner is Christine Miller. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide me with your address and your new stamp set will be on the way. 🙂
On to this weeks card. This weeks challenge is hard for a lot of people. Making masculine cards can be hard because most of the stamping world provides items that are mostly feminine.
I used some Stampin Up products to make this card. I used the new wood grain designer paper that is available in two different styles. The white for the main card base, and the wood panel for acorns and trim paper. The sentiment acorn (Acorny Thank You) was stamped on brown cardstock using Versamark ink and covered in gold embossing powder. For the tops of the other two acorns, I used brown cardstock, stamped using Versamark and also heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The bottoms of the two acorns are from the wood panel paper. I inked up the solid acorn image with Versamark & then covered them with clear embossing powder and heat set. It gives the acorns a shiny appearance. I propped all of those up with some 3M foam tape and adhered everything to a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base.
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks card. I can’t wait to see all your ideas!
Have a great week!
