How about a masculine touch!!!
I made this card today for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS132) and I'm so pleased that when completed, it really took on a nice masculine look! We have a dear friend whose birthday is on the 25th and I've earmarked this for him! You can find all the details about this challenge here if you would like to play too! Here is the card that inspired me!!! She did not mention the size of this card, so I decided to make mine 4"x9.25".
The main difficulty with this project was getting a good photo of it, which happens quite often! In the previous photo, the middle "square's" stamped image can hardly be seen, so here is a close-up of it!
The stamped sentiment is hard to see in the full photo too, so here is a close-up of it too!
Thanks for looking!!!
