The Challenge this week is to make a masculine card. Check out the Manly Ideas that the team came up with: Bev Gerard, Jeanne Streiff, Lisa Silver, Robin Kirkpatrick, Sandy Hulsart and Vicki Garrett.
Man cards.... always a struggle for me!! I still could not resist adding a button and little bow. I used a only a portion of the Howdy Southwest Collage Stamp, cutting out the coyote element to feature on my card. I used 1/2" Scor-Pal tape to add a band of jute string around the entire center panel, as you wrap the jute string the adhesive grabs on and holds it right in place. I also used a Southwest Corner Punch to create the little notches on the stamped panel and added a jute string frame.
You can see here the Copics I used to color the Coyote. I used the Blender quite a bit trying to give it a bleached or more faded look. I added a tiny Happy Birthday Sentiment to complete the card. The final card size is an A2.
