Masculine card: Congratulations

Hello my friends!

Today I would like to share with you a masculine card that I really like the look of. I think this is going to be the first of many because I really enjoyed playing with this Tim Holtz’s die, Distress inks and my embossing folders. Here is what I created…hope you like it and get inspired!

Quick Instructions:

I started by applying Distress inks inside my embossing folder and stamping on white cardstock to create the background. Then I smooshed some brown Distress inks on my working area and sprayed them with water. I smooshed and dabbed another piece of white cardstock through the inks to create another background out of which I die cut some cogs. Next I die cut some cogs out of black cardstock. And I die cut the sentiment out of golden thick paper which I got from a chocolate box packaging! Then I cut a wide piece of black cardstock to serve as a background for my sentiment – so that the golden letters pop. I cut everything to size and adhered them down using double sided tape and glossy accents. And my card was done!

Supplies used:

  • A6 Card base
  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • The Works -Black craft card 200gsm
  • Tim Holtz – Distress mini ink pads: Hickory smoke, Black soot, Walnet stain, Vintage photo, Chipped sapphire, Tea dye, Gathered twigs, Rusty hinge

  • Unbranded – Congratulations die
  • Sizzix – Tim Holtz- Gearhead die set
