Yay!

Recently, a family member just achieved a huge (musical) goal he'd had since he was a kid, and of course I needed to send a card to congratulate him on making that dream come true!  Masculine cards aren't always easy, but this one came together so fast! 

This quick and easy masculine card features a fun grungy Vintage Notes Background, as well as a metallic sheen on the Diamond Netting Embossing. Created using Fun Stampers Journey Stamps and supplies.

How I created this card: 

  • I started by stamping the Vintage Notes background onto Whip Cream Card Stock with River Stone ink.  I die cut the stamped panel with the largest Journey Circle die, before I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment.  Then I inked the edges of the die cut.  
  • I ran my card front (4"x 5.25") panel of Denim Days Card Stock through my Platinum machine with the Diamond Netting Embossing Folder.  Once that was embossed, I rubbed the Brush Silver PanPastel lightly over the raised portion of the image to add some light metallic sheen.  
  • I added foam squares to the die cut circle, and set it on the embossed card front - slightly off the edge.  I trimmed the portion that over hung from the card front, and inked the trimmed edge to match the rest of the die cut.  Then, I mounted the card front onto a white card base.
  • A sprinkling of sequins finished off the card.
