CAS-ual Friday - Masculine with no Kraft
Quick post - I am running around like a crazy woman trying to get things done. I wanted to post the card I made. The challenge at CAS-ual Friday is to make a masculine card with ribbon and no kraft paper. Honest this is not kraft paper. It is cream with flecks in it. I am not the world's best photographer that is for sure.
This is a favorite go to stamp for a masculine card. It is an old Cornish Heritage Farm stamp. I don't think the new owners have brought this stamp back. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Pretty good sentiment to fit almost any occasion for a man. The solid colors - kinda burgundy and navy are card bases I have had. The burgundy was a perfect color to finish off my card so I just cut up the premade card base. I added a little texture with an embossing folder that is just that width. Hard to believe I could not find any navy ribbon but I did have this other ribbon that worked.
I am also putting it in the current challenge on Addicted to CAS. The key word is Texture. I have added texture with the dry embossing.
I had made another card but I used twine on it. You can see it here. These cards will go in my next Operation Write Home box.
Enjoy your Saturday. We have having a gorgeous day so I am trying to get so much done. I am going to be in Milwaukee for an Operation Write Home event, try to stop and work for a couple hours on the way, stop and visit my daughter for a little bit ....... now you know why I am running around like a crazy woman.
