First one - my feminine card. I had a go at making a plaid background. I don't have any suitable stamps so with this one I tried using a stencil
I used some distress inks in Festive Berries and Broken China and a silver gel pen. I then cut the Simon Says die. It has two parts so I used the blue ink on the little frame. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in the circle space. I added some little fussy cut Holly leaves (Inkadinkado) Was just getting ready to take a photo when I noticed that I had smudged some black ink onto the card... so big save with a larger fussy cut Holly ~ this time a Kaisercraft stamp. Added some glossy accents on the berries.
My masculine card follows the same design and sentiment,
This time I used a ruler to draw my plaid with a gold calligraphy pen, a Kaiser marker and a white gel pen on a pale blue card. I die cut the panel and added the gold pen on the outer frame. My base is some Kraft card.
I'm really enjoying the warm weather we are having and that we live so close to the beach. I did a lovely walk along the shore line today... dodging a few waves over the pipeline I was walking along. High tide had been about an hour before. It's a great place to live.
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving for Thursday to all my American friends.
