WWC103 - Gail's Masculine Challenge

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/
Welcome to another Watercooler Wednesday! This week it's my turn to host and the challenge is Masculine Theme: Anything Goes. That means your project can be any colours or design.

For my card, I used the awesome new Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. What fun is this folder! It not only embosses - it also debosses, giving you fantastic texture. It's hard to choose which side to use. Unless you use one of Stampin' Up's metallic foils - like I did.
I used Copper Foil and paired it with Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla cardstocks. The inks are Tip Top Taupe, stamped off once, and Always Artichoke. The opening was cut with Lots of Labels Framelits. Just a tip: if I do this again, I would cut the opening on the other side of the Copper Foil so there wouldn't be the mark from the framelit. And, perhaps cut the opening first - then do the embossing. This folder really does produce a deep texture.

A quick, no-muss, no-fuss card! I was able to take the photo of this outside as we finally had a bright, sunny day.

Off you go now to see how the other Watercooler Artists have handled this challenge. Just visit Watercooler Wednesday to see their work and then link up your own.

  1. Hi Gail. Great use of that Hexigon Embossing Folder. I think the image from the Label thinlet looks fine on the card front. It sort of makes you realize the Very Vanilla piece is behind it. Such a perfect masculine card!
