This week at training day it was all based around male themed as quite a few of us struggle with mens cards....definatly me!! Also fathers day is approaching so we were all asked to go out of our comfort zone and do a male swap, well i always seem to go foe crumb cake when i come to do a mens card, i just love the authentic grungy look especially with the edges blended with a bit of soft suede ink. I decided to use the distressed dots and en francis and the background as these are quite uni sex stamps depending what colour they are stamped in, i do like a splash of colour so i had to go with pool party to freshen it up a bit, i distressed the edges of the pool party card stock, using my new distress tool, other stamps used were teeny tiny sentiments, bring on the cake and ciao baby all stamped in chocolate chip ink, puches used were word window, petite curly label and curly label, i used the linen thread through the curly lablel punch out, i edges the base card with a faux stirched outline this just finished it off.
i also thought i'd add a picture of my fab cup cake we all got....cookie monster!! Brilliant!
