I never seem to have trouble making a card suitable for a female. However, "man" cards are just a bit difficult at times. When I do come up with something that works for a man, I do a happy dance! All products Stampin' Up!
For this project, I embossed 3 of the feather images from the stamp set Feather Together using Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on to watercolor paper. These images are meant to layer on top of each other, but I love the way they look with this technique. I actually lined them up on the block and stamped all of them at once. After I embossed them, I used the Memento Tuxedo Black ink refill as watercolor and just did a total black wash on top of the gold feathers. After it the piece dried, I tore the edges of the paper. I think the pop of the white torn edge really gives it a stylish look.
The Hexagons Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder really added some interest to this card. The impression this folder makes is DEEP. The tiny "Happy Birthday" is from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. I would buy that stamp set just for the tiny words alone. I punched the words out with the Classic Label Punch. Added more gold accents and called it done.
The rumor is TRUE...
