Sunday Fun Day: Wild & Sweet masculine birthday card

 

Unfrogettable Stamping | Sunday Fun Day masculine birthday card featuring the Wild and Sweet stamp set and Artistic Mix decorative masks by Stampin' Up!

  Hello and Happy Sunday! Today's theme over on the Sisters in Stamping blog is masculine cards. Oddly enough, I chose the theme several months ago and then struggled to make a card because most of my masculine sets retired.

  Thankfully, I had ordered this fun Wild & Sweet stamp set from the new Annual catalog and it worked great with the new Artistic Mix decorative masks, which I colored with the Blending Brush. To add more dimension to the stamped image, I used a few Watercolor Pencils.

  I didn't have any masculine DSP so decided to make my own for the front of the card. I used soft suede ink and a blending brush along with the plaid design mask from the Artistic Mix decorative masks. I also wanted to add some texture, so scored vertical lines into the mossy meadow card stock panel and had the embossed side show.  Lastly, I added a little more texture by "sueding" the early espresso strip of card stock across the stamped panel.  I think I pulled off masculine, don't you?   

  Want to make one yourself? Here are the card stock dimensions that I used for my project today:

Card Dimensions

Base card: Soft Suede CS 11” x 4-1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″

Card front strip: Mosssy Meadow CS 4-3/4″ x 2″, scored every 1/4" vertically

Card front panel: Crumb Cake CS 3-1/2″ x 3"

Sueded strip: Early Espresso 3-1/2" x 1/4"

 Here is a closer look at the front of the card. It is a little easier to see the sueded texture on the early espresso strip. To achieve that effect, use a bone folder and rub it along the card stock like you do with scissors and curling ribbon - you're essentially breaking the fibers of the card stock. After a few times you'll see that the card stock starts to split - carefully pry it apart into two strips. One side will be smooth, but the inside will have this wonderful texture that looks like suede. I glued one side across the panel, then folded the other in half at a slight angle and tore the ends to add even more texture and glued it down. It looks almost like ribbon, but isn't! I also used watercolor pencils to color in the grass (old olive), the raccoon's fur (basic gray) and added just a teeny bit of white to the eyes to make them pop a little more. It pulls the colors of the card together nicely and gives the raccoon image a little more dimension.
