I’m kind of excited about today’s Sketch Card from Stamping 411. I don’t often do Man Cards and decided to give it a whirl. I wanted to use this new set I got called Engraved Greetings. So here goes….
And my Manly Card!!!!
I just love this Cherry Cobbler and Hound's-tooth pattern together. I hope you do too. When I saw this little set I thought, hmmmmmmmmm Engraved should be embossed, so I did. It’s so rich looking IRL!!
I embossed the Happy Birthday Stamp in Black Embossing Powder for the image piece and punched out and then made a faux mat to go behind in black. My Square is cut to 3 3/8 and The black Mat behind is 3 12 square. The Dry Embossed mat was cut to 3 78 x 5 1/8 and the Black Mat under that is 4 x 5 1/4. I then mounted on to a Cherry Cobbler card that is 4 1/2 x 8 1/2.
Can you see the little strip of DSP peeking out from the inside of the card?
The little design is followed thorough with a stamp that I think matched pretty well and it’s from Artistic Etches and add a little finishing touch to the card along with a little ribbon shredding with some stripped grosgrain.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will visit the other Operator’s Works as well.
Have a great weekend!!!
