Man's Card

Good morning everyone:
Just another quick post today, I am very busy creating cards for our "Cards for a Cause Spring Workshop". Anyone in the London area that is interested, check out the details on the Rubber Room website. We had a fabulous turnout last year and a lot of fun too!!

This is a card I made for a man. I have a bit of trouble with man's cards because its tough not to add all the frilly dilly embellies we love so much. I did manage to sneak a piece of ribbon on it though.

I brayered Kalidecolor ink from the Cappachino pad onto glossy paper. The image is from Magenta. I stamped it with perfect medium and used black embossing powder. I used a stamps by Judith stubby for the little sprig on the background. Pretty quick and easy, no painting and near no embellishments.

Hope you all have a great day....
