I was inspired to make a masculine card with the base of my card being the new In-Color Dapper Denim. Can't believe I haven't been using the color as much! I combine a few retired items on my cards with new products. The tie is from Baby's First Framelits, which are still current. The retired items include the Eclectic Paper Piercing Template, which I have them all and really like the look. The candy dots are also retired. Wanna hear something funny, I wasn't planning on using the candy dots, but I got some extra ink on my paper when I stamped the sentiment. The perfectionist in me wanted to redo the card, but then I thought, "hey, men aren't perfect either, lol" so I used the candy dots to cover up my mistake. Plus, when it's a handmade card, it's the handmade part that counts, right?
The sentiment is from the new Occasions catalog called Suite Sentiments and it's a great set of 11 different rubber stamps. I created the ombre look on the sentiment by using sponge daubers in three different ink colors. I like the look, simple card.
Well, that's all I have for now, thanks for stopping by! Until next time! Have a great day!
