My Masculine Swap Card

Monday night was our Team Meeting and Swaps.  This month the theme was Masculine Cards.  They all came out really nice. 

Here is my card for tonight and I'll show you some of the others in the next days.


Recipe:
Chocolate Chip (retiring) - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4"
Crumb Cake 5" x 3 3/4"

Stamps:
Country Livin'
We Must Celebrate

Ink:
Early Espresso


I started by stamping the boots on the Crumb Cake as shown below and then used my Stampin' Blends Crumb Cake to add a little color and shading.  I also made a couple of them using a Blender Pen and ink from inside the cap.  I decided I liked the Stampin' Blends best.

Then I stamped the guitars onto another piece of Crumb Cake and then used my Scan 'n Cut to cut them all out.  Thank goodness for that wonderful creation! 

A little tip on adding the Burlap Ribbon.  I originally put it down with Tear n' Tape because that stuff sticks to anything... except a strip of Burlap!  I added a large gluedot under the end and that held everything in place.


Thank you for looking in today. 

It's Hump Day!  Do you know what Friday is?  Leave a comment if you know.

  1. How fun! I like this and the little added shading. The burlap ribbon and the thread are perfect on here as well as the colors. Great idea! Even great for a noncowboy boot person or nonguitar one - it just sort of says masculine!

    1. I love this boot set. It can even be a nice pretty feminine boot with the right colors and embellishments!
