Operation Write Home has been focusing on masculine cards, which is great, because it seems a little more difficult to make a card a guy would want. Most guys just aren't into all the flowers and glitter like us ladies are.
So I started with a little bit of patterned paper, since the new Work It Wednesday challenge is about using patterned papers. Then, I lined it with some green cardstock, and used the tab from a manilla file folder to stamp and emboss the sentiment on (don't tell the husband what I did to the folder, please!).
The background just seemed like it needed something, but I didnt want to use more patterned paper and overwhelm the card. So I scored diagonal lines, and I really like the texture it gave to the card.
Then, of course, I added some string. I also stamped and fussy cut several stars, one of which I glued to a paperclip with Glossy Accents. I also used a few staples. Who said office supplies couldn't be used for papercrafting?
I have also linked this card to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge blog. Their theme is anything goes!
Feel free to check out my Amazon store for products I frequently use and love! There's a link to it at the top of the page!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
