Welcome Stampin' Friends!
It's Stampin' Royalty Challenge Day! This week's challenge is MASCULINE CARDS! Don't we all need some inspiration in that area? And, just in time for Father's Day. I don't know about you but I always have a few cards to make each year... husband, father, father-in-law. And each guy is different and unique so I can not always make the same card for each of them. If any of this sounds familiar then you must check out all the cards made for this week's challenge at Stampin' Royalty, starting with mine...
I made my card to match the Father's Day book and gift card holder I made for my husband already. And to give my card that distressed look I used the Distressing Esstentials Kit (#118762), it is retiring, so if you do not have it you should get one before tomorrow!!!
It has four distressing ink spots in the kit as well as a solid stamp. You just ink up the solid stamp and rub the stamp across the object you want to distress. It is fabulous! It gives a much different look than a sponge. You also have a sanding block, an emery board and 3 precision files. A very fun accessory for all paper crafter's.
I also used the retiring Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies (#113464) to die cut the word "DAD" out of chipboard, which I covered with Well Worn Designer Paper (#122359).
If you have made some cool masculine cards or are now inspired to do so, you should play along with our challenge! CLICK HERE for more detials on how to do that.
