It's been basically forever since I posted anything! I generally get too busy during the summer, and stamping falls by the wayside unless I need to quickly make something for a birthday party or wedding. Well it seems that summer is winding down, and we are having a dreary day (and too windy for flying) so why not pull out some craft supplies and look for my mojo?
I was enamoured with the card Betsy made on this week's Make it Monday challenge at PTI, and wanted to give that idea a try.
Wow, her photography is fantastic. Anyway, the challenge was to utilize floral sets in a way that is guy friendly. I always have a shortage of man cards in my stash, and this seemed like a lot more fun than my usual "go to" for guys, plaid. (Actually I did think about working some plaid in here!).
I found a scrap of kraft that was already embossed with a woodgrain texture, and it was just the right size to fit with the floral images, although it's a little too big and sort of defies the rule of thirds. Breaking it up a bit with twine and sentiment banners partially corrects the problem. I doubt most guys would recognize the rule of thirds had been broken anyway, right?
Thanks for stopping by,
