Welcome back, Kre8tors! Today we are hopping with the International Ink. Stamp. Share. Monthly Blog Hop and today’s theme is Masculine! I hope you enjoyed Linda’s wonderful project and be sure to scroll down to that next button to hop on over to Deb’s blog for some awesome inspiration! I’m really excited about this theme because I don’t often think to make cards for the guys in my life, but I always seem to need them! I was so excited to play with the Painted Seasons stamp set so I decided to use the pinecone and fern from the set on my card.
I knew I wanted to use some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this masculine card, and I had lots of scraps! So I decided to cut up 4 different patterns and use them as panels in the background.
I stamped the pinecones and fern from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration set, and cut them out by hand, also known as fussy cutting. I love how detailed this stamp set looks! I stamped the ‘Thanks’ from the Thankful Thoughts set that can be found in the Annual Catalog.
I popped up all the panels using dimensionals, a LOT of dimensionals. Watch the video to see just how many I used! I finished it all off with some Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake and boom! Done! This was a fast and simple masculine card!
Early Espresso Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/2″
DSP: 4 @ 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Dark Strip: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″

My inspiration from this card came from using a non-traditional Christmas color with my Pool Party Satin Ribbon. . . and so this card was born! The three pieces of black cardstock on this card were all cut from ONE piece that measures 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″! Watch the video to see how!
I love how the black makes the Pool Party POP and gives this card a bold statement. And the Copper is simply GORGEOUS in the pine cones.
