Back on the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog again to share a couple of Masculine cards with you.
I find these a bit difficult to make, BUT if you pick out a couple of awesome dies from the Dies R Us Store, they become much easier. Let's take a look!
This CAS masculine card uses the fantastic dies, Birch Trio, by Memory Box and Snow Drifts by Die-Namics. Cutting 2 rolling hills from the Snow Drift dies in Green card stock, I sponged the edges in Always Artichoke ink to add some depth. Then I stamped my trees in Old Olive ink. Cutting my Birch Trio several times I spritzed them with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold, this also adds a bit more depth to a very flat (and easily mailed) card. Stamps by Gina K Designs, Pleasant Plurals and Winter Wonderland.
My sentiment was heat embossed in Green Embossing Powder on to a hand cut Vellum Strip. A very simple Masculine card.
My second card is just as simple and manly.
I created my background by scoring every 1/2" on Ivory card stock. Then I swiped ink pads in Bermuda Bay, Dove Gray and White inks. This gives a nice aged look to the Wood Grain Technique. Images stamped in Black Licorice ink on to a Spellbinders Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame. I masked off my duck image to stamp the cat tail and reeds behind him. Stamps by Gina K Designs, The Wetlands, colored with Copic Markers.
And what's a duck without feathers? These are fun dies by Poppy Stamps, Drifting Feathers. I first cut them in Tempting Turquoise card stock and again in Vellum. Layering the two to give a different look. Stickles in Waterfall and Yellow to add a bit of sparkle.
Other Hill and Feather dies that could be used:
X Cut Dies
