Make It Masculine

This was for today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS, Make It Masculine. . .to make a masculine card using stamps that you wouldn't normally consider masculine. I haven't used my Sweet Shapes set in a while and I thought it would do the trick. The slit/fold down on the patterned paper was an attempt to give the impression of a collar. I was trying to embellish in a manly way. LOL This patterned paper, by the way, is the Prints Sampler from Stampin' Up! In May, for every $35 you spend, you can order this Prints Sampler for $9.95. It's called the Palette O'Prints promotion. It's a 6x6 pad of double-sided Designer Series paper that will be in the Fall/Winter Collection 2007! I love it so far! It has patterns in four different colors. I thought the green would work best for this masculine card. Hope you have a wonderful Friday! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Sweet Shapes, Rough Edges Alphabet; Ink- Certainly Celery, Old Olive, VersaMagic Tea Leaves; Paper- DCWV card base, Whisper White, Basic Black, Palette O'Prints Prints Sampler; Accessories- small circle punch, Making Memories brads, paper piercer, black grosgrain ribbon.

Great card I love the idea of making a "collar"! I'll have to remember that for Father's Day cards!

That collar cut out is TOO cute! Way to go! I think I need to get those rectangle background shapes!

Great Card! I love the paper & color choice. I have the paper but haven't played with it yet - hopefully soon!

This is FANTASTIC! Honestly, I thought it looked like a "collar" even before I read that it was your intent! Love the colors and the paper. I hadn't heard SU had these. :)
