A Guy's card...

The DT for Impression Obsession has two challenges a month and we create something with the chosen theme and then share it on our blogs. Today's theme was to create a Masculine Card. Please check out these links to everyone's blog to see what the Impression Obsession DT ladies created for today... Daniela Dobson - Laura Fulcher - Dina Kowal - Deborah March - Kelli Richardson - Shirley Ross - Jeanne Streiff.

You are all invited to enter your creations for the Greetings for "Guys in Our Life" Challenge and any future challenges we have too. Below is how to enter your card so it can be posted on the Impression-Obsession Blog and in the gallery located there just for I/O customers:
  • Use Impression-Obsession stamps for your card.
  • Email the card to Shirley, our webmaster at
  • Every week cards will be selected to be showcased on the I/O blog and in the Customer Gallery there too.
  • This challenge will be open until Sunday, July 5. Go get Inky!!!


I tried to keep this card toned down a bit, after all it's supposed to be a guy card. I stamped the Golf-Tini randomly and colored with my Copics. I did a little airbrushing to take the bright whiteness away. I used a Copic and Red Micron Pen to create my border around the stamped panel. I made a little pocket holder for the card - thinking it might be neat to attach it to the front of a plain kraft gift bag. To make the bow and top bunch of crazy strings - I first created a slip knot of jute strings through the eyelet. It looked a little lacking, so I added a bow made from multiple strands of the jute string, using the Bow Easy Tool. With my extra DP I went ahead and added a little decorative strip down the inside. I used Black Rainbow Tape 1/16" Width to cover the paper seams on the pocket envelope and also on the inside panel of the card. Click on the pics for a better up close view.
