Our current challenge at CARDZ 4 GUYZ (#280) is to add some Metal to your card. How about a whole lot of metal?
I have been away for a bit of a holiday and had a lovely time and the deadline for this challenge is just around the corner. I wanted to create a great card on the quick and that meant one stamp set and a few basic supplies.
I chose the Daisy Lane stamp set because the Fern image is perfect for a masculine card and the sentiment, It’s Your Time to Shine is an excellent congratulations for anything a guy might accomplish!
Here is the result:
- Card Base and Focal Panel: Brushed Copper cardstock. Card Base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) and Focal Panel (4¾” x 2½”). I stamped three images of the Fern with Versamark ink and heat-set them with Copper Embossing Powder for a tone-on-tone look.
- Accent Mat and Sentiment Panel: Basic Black cardstock. Accent Panel (5” x 2¾”) and Sentiment Label (2½” x ½”). The sentiment was also stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Copper Embossing Powder, and then the label was die-cut with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies for a tidy finish. The Copper on the Black is a nice contrast to the tone-on-tone Copper Focal Panel.
- Inside of the card (not shown) is a Very Vanilla cardstock Panel (4¼” x 3”) accented by a Basic Black cardstock Accent Mat (4½” x 3¼”).
I really like how this card is elegantly handsome. Copper is my favorite Metal accent. What is yours? I am looking forward to seeing what you will create for challenge this time around! Don’t forget to share.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me today. Cheers, Jolanda!
An additional challenge that this card may suit is the Paper Players Theme Challenge (#559) Fall Fun. What is more fun than falling Copper Colored Leaves?
