Male Card

Most of us crafters find making cards for the men in our lives, difficult, and I'm one of them.  Unless they have a hobby then it's nice and
It's my hubby's 60th in a couple of weeks and here's what I came up with for him.
I started of with a stencil by Memory Box for the background, which is called 'Texture Scraped Paint'.  I inked through this with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Next I used Fired Brick, Distress Ink Reinker, dripped a couple of drops onto my mat, mixed in a little water, dipped a paintbrush into it and flicked it over the stenciled area till I was happy with the splashes.  While this dried, I got out the Letter Box stamps by Clarity and stamped up my wording, using Red Brick for the lettering and Vintage Photo to stamp the boxes.  Before cutting them out, I used Versamark ink to cover all the lettering and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, giving it a lovely shine.  I'd have used a glittery one if it had been a female card.... lol.  I used sticky pads to stick the wording to the card.

Fantastic masculine card, Karen! This is a great design to remember for my elderly uncles, as I always send them birthday cards.
