French foliage resist
Good afternoon everyone. With Father's Day just behind us I have been thinking more and more about masculine cards. Most crafters will agree that they are hard to make with so many stamp sets and papers geared towards women. Stampin' Up have listened to their customers who have been asking for more masculine stamp sets and this is one of the sets that has been released in the mini catalogue as a result.
I masked the top two thirds of the card off with scrap paper and then stamped the leaf design in Old Olive, a really rich and deep colour in the Brights collection. I then stamped over the leaf image with versamark. I started doing this with the stamp-a-majig but quickly realised that I didn't need to as I could position the stamp quite easily as it was a clear mount.
I hope that you like this card, I absolutely adore it, one of those cards that you look at and smile and only send to someone that you know will appreciate it! Remember that you can order Stampin' Up supplies from me 24 hours a day 7 days a week and that you can qualify for hostess benefits even if you don't have a party, just by placing an order.
Don't forget Stampin' Up's extra £20 for hostesses this month, why not book a party for me this month or next and reap the benefits!
