Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the blog today and I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my brother (I am behind in my birthday cards as I have another birthday card to make!) I always struggle to make masculine cards and it takes me a while to create one. This one is a bit grungy/steampunk inspired.
I used the CreaDiem Collection as I was drawn to the muted tones of the papers. I also used foam tape to add definition to the layers.
I used two Tim Holtz stamps, Simple Sayings and Odds and Ends as well as a memo pin. The steampunk clock is by Cheery Lynn. I also fussy cut a clock from Vintage Autumn Basics XVI papers to add to the centre of the clock as shown. I distressed the edges with walnut stain and black soot distress inks.
I usually machine stitch around the edges of my cards, but I used Bobunny’s stitches stamp on my card and tag instead. I love the distressed pattern of the stamp.
