Who doesn't like a good top hat?!? I just love this new stamp set, GUY GREETINGS! It has everything you need to make a wonderful manly card.
The hardest part for me when I make a masculine card is choosing the colors. I don't want it to be dark. It seems like a lot of "boys" colors aren't bright and booming. So I chose Wild Wasabi to bring the other colors to life.
For the background label, I used the Sale-a-braion paper, and colored it with Wild Wasabi. The shiny areas (embossed) resist the ink and leave it white. I just love this paper and technique.
I stamped the hats on Marina Mist with the same color ink. I love this look as it's very subtle but still gives the detail. I'm not a fussy cutter usually but I knew these would have to be.
I used the hats and stamped them three times in a row with color on color again. Then I stamped the saying...purposely crooked...across them. I love the contrast!
On the left is my card and on the right is the card I received from Elaine Schader in a swap at leadership. I just love swapping.
