MALE CARDS....who needs them?
I do, you do, we all do!!
I wanted some male cards because my stock is low and since Father's Day is heading our way
I thought "let's git her done"!!!
Here is my desk, LOL, you DON'T want to see what the room looks like if I pulled back on the view.
This is my first creation. Warning, I used LOTS of retired stuff, but there is no reason you can't use the current set called "Established Elegance" on page 125 of the catalog.
If you are like me, I keep all the retired items, because I liked them in the first place so why would I get rid of them. I'll bet you have tons of retired stuff that can be used.
I used the current stamp set "Clockworks" on page 105 of the catalog. Stamped the watch, the dial (using my stamp-a-ma-jig), clear embossed it, then added some retired Hodgepode Hardware (Antique Brass), popped it up on dimensionals.
The "Real Life" stamp set is from 2006 but I don't know the set name. I stamped it then embossed with clear E.P., again using the Hodgepode Hardware.
Next up is a Father's Day card.
I used the retired spiral punch, love it! And some retired Jumbo Pewter Eyelets. I used the paper piercing mat to line up the brads.
I used the crop-a-dile to adhere the brads.
Here I used the single stamp Basic Label Stamp and the Apothecard Accent Framelits (basic label). As you can see I sponged a lot!!
You might still have this corner window punch, which I embossed with clear embossing powder.
Can you see the retired Magic Mesh? I sponged all over it.
This is the inside of all the cards.
Here are the items I used to make these cards:
