For many cardmakers, masculine-themed cards are a challenge to make. How fitting, then, that this week's challenge, hosted by Kath, is to do a masculine-themed project. I guarantee you will find something to inspire you for the next time you need to make a card for a man in your life, whether he is husband, father, uncle, grandfather, son, brother or a friend.
My card uses a technique called Triple Time Stamping, which is a process where three layers of card stock, of different sizes, and piled on top of each other, and then the images stamped randomly so they are on each of the layers.
Sound confusing? Here's what I mean:
The stamped-on layers are crumb cake and the bee is embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. The in-between layers are from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. A sentiment from the same stamp set as the bee image - Pun Intended - is stamped with Early Espresso ink.
I love that sentiment, and it makes this a card to suit any occasion - or no occasion at all! Just beecause.
