Hello Friend

Masculine card has been always a challenge for me. This is a card I made today turn out to be more masculine style than I was planning to be 🙂


I picked kraft cardstock as the base card, wanna have similar ink color for the border and black for sentiment. But I tried gold for the sentimen and turned out monochromatic. Love it 🙂

I bought Winnie & Walter – V for Chevron stamp set last year and had not any time to play with it yet. But today, I had so much fun creating this monochrome card.

First I stamped the chevron with Desert Sand Exclusive Ink Pad multiple time creating the bottom and above borders. And then I heat embossed the sentiment from Winnie & Walter – The Big, The Bold and Happy stamp set. I mixed the Gold embossing powder (CTMH) with Clear Glitter embossing powder (Whisper, I got it from AC Moore).

I link up my card at 3 amazing challenges:

Darnell’s NBUS Challenge. This is one fun challenge, just perfect for me (and you, too) who have TONS of Never-Before-Used-Schtuff lying around screaming to be used 🙂

Winnie & Walter 1st Birthday Bash. It is a one month long celebration! Today, I join the One Challenge with Shay.



And The Stamp Nation 4th Birthday Bash – Clean and Simple Masculine Card. Catherine has created an amazing card for inspiration on the forum!
