We’re sure seeing a lot of masculine cards all over Blogland recently, aren’t we? Well, that’s what happens when we get close to Father’s Day. We’re focusing on masculine cards for our Double D Challenge today, too – One for the Boys! Now, it doesn’t have to be a Father’s Day card. The card I made is for a birthday.
I used Power Poppy’s Move the Soul clear stamp set. I don’t know much about motorcycles other than how I enjoyed clinging to my boyfriend on the back of his bike in the old days – pre-Rich, of course – but I’ll tell you truly I did enjoy making this card a lot more than I thought I would. No designer paper, no dies. Just stamps that come with the set. I love when a set includes little extras you can use in the design. I used six stamps on this card.
There’s some embossing across the top and a whole lot of ink smudging. I was thinking “dirt bike” and hoping I’m not way off base with this particular type of bike. Coloring was done with Copics. See the inspiration board below. I have Power Poppy sets that work for each of those tiles, but I know just who this card is going to, and the bike is perfect.
There’s a prize for a random winner, too. Yay! We like prizes!
I hope you can join us at Double D for our One for the Boys challenge. Be sure to pop over to the blog for some fabulous design team inspiration. I’m sharing this in two other challenges today, too:
- Cards In Envy – No Girls Allowed. A cards-only challenge. Must be flat enough to fit in an envelope.
- Power Poppy Power & Spark – Happy Mail. Make a card with the express purpose of mailing it, and then actually put it in the mail.
See you again soon!
