For The Man

School started last Monday, so things have been a little crazy around here. Is it the same for you? Due to that, I missed making a card to share last Friday for the Amazing Birthday post at SSINK. However, I incorporated the idea I had for that card into my masculine card for today.

When I saw the "It's For You" stamp in Amazing Birthday, the outside reminded me of a grommet. I embossed three of them with Silver Embossing Powder on Marina Mist cardstock. The 3/4" Circle Punch will perfectly punch out the center. Using the 1-1/4" Circle Punch to punch out the whole image will leave a small border around your design. I used the 1" Circle Punch and the 1-3/8" Circle Punch to create a Real Red layer behind my grommets. So as not to be wasteful, I used one of the centers from the stamped images and one of the centers from my Real Red to create my greeting. I felt that tying it on to the ribbon with some White Baker's Twine helped to tie it in with the rope paper from the Maritime Designer Series Paper pack.

Do you notice anything unfamiliar on this card? The Lucky Stars Embossing Folder will be available for customer purchase on August 28th!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Most of my projects I create specifically to share with you, and I love knowing that you've been here to enjoy them. You can also stop over at SSINK for more masculine inspiration.
