June 2014 Diva Dare - Day 10

Howdy! Jen here with day 9 of this month's Diva Dare! This month it's all about the men!

 This month we're daring you to create a stamped card or project with a masculine theme. 


When it comes to masculine I always find that clean and simple seem to work well for me (and I know it's the kind of card my husband likes so it's win-win)! I started with choosing a color scheme. To do that I just started grabbing cardstock and laying them out on my desk until I found a palette of colors that I liked. Next I went about embossing different pieces and getting a layout sorted out. I wanted to go with the Wonderful Marvelous stamp set because I just LOVE how whimsical it is.  To finish off I dug through my supply of epoxy dots and mixed and matched until I found matching colors to my color scheme. This really went together very fast and I love how it came out!

Card Details
Stamps: Wonderful Marvelous (Verve)
Ink: Nautical Blue (Memento)
Paper: Kraft (MFT), Navy (Neenah), White (PTI), Green and Aqua (Bazzill scraps)
Accessories: Chain Link embossing folder (LifeStyle Crafts), Woodgrain embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Banner Bundle Die set (Verve), Classy Label Die (Verve), foam squares (Scrapbook Adhesives), Epoxy Dots (My Mind's Eye), Quick Dry Adhesive (3M)
