Sweet Stop Sketch 109

Hello everyone! It's Saturday and that means it's time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge...
This week Korin added a spin to the sketch to make it masculine.

Of course that's one of my weak areas in card-making...masculinity. The only thing I know to do to make it masculine is to 'rough it up' some with distressing and ink and leave off the Primas!  Here is what I came up with...

I just love this new set that I got from Sweet n Sassy stamps: Shining Light. The papers are from my stash and it's an older line from Making Memories called Funky Vintage~Lizzie. My card base is River Rock cardstock from Stampin' Up!® but you can't tell that in the photo because I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Honey. I used the embedded embossing technique on the two rectangle panels before I adhered them to my base using the Cuttlebug embossing folder-Tiny Mosaic Texture. I'm not thrilled with the way this turned out but, like I said...masculine cards are not my thing! Hopefully my next card is better.

  2. I like the sketch, AND the card. You're right about masculine cards, it's hard for me to. But I think you've nailed it!!! I like how you've embossed two of your layers. I might have to try this. Thanks for sharing. ~ Abby

  4. So pretty Jennipher, you did a great job at making it masculine. You know, I don't think I've ever made a masculine tag.

    Have a great day!

  12. I don't like doing masculine cards. I do girl cards and boy pages. I really should work on doing some boy cards and girl pages. LOL Your card is beautiful. I like the colors and embossing only part of the background, I think it is a great touch.
