The Masculine Cards keep on comin’! This time I used the new Patio Party Designer Series Paper Pack from Stampin’ Up. It has great graphic designs and some of the patterns are perfect for masculine cards!
Today’s card is super Clean and Simple and the polka dot theme was inspired by the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and the sketch is from Clean and Simple Stamping.
I used my 1-1/4" circle punch to cut three circles from one sheet of DSP. This particular sheet is awesome with stripes of different patterns in varying widths.
When I look at a piece of Summer Starfruit Cardstock (the yellow here), honestly, well, how to say this politely? ummm….I guess I’ll just be nice and say I don’t care for it.
BUT, when I put it with other colors, especially with some DSP, I think it makes a really great accent color. Here I paired it with Midnight Muse. I love the result! How ’bout you? A winner? Or no?
I actually finished the card, took photos of it and started editing the photos when I decided to go back and add something to the card. I cut 3/4" circles out of Midnight Muse and added them to the centers of the DSP circles. I think it really added a needed punch to this card!
The greeting was stamped three times without inking between stamping.
