The card was inspired by three things . . . a sketch from my place for friendship and inspiration, StampNation . . . a recent video that I watched from a Cards for Him class from Catherine Pooler and of course, my card kit which has some very masculine stamps and paper (great timing with the Cards for Him class coming out right around shipment time).
So here is my card which is a masculine thank you card . . .
I combined bold colors for my stamping that would match the pattern paper. On the pinked edge of the Cornerstone Seal die cut, I colored with a distress marker to get a darker tone than sponging alone would provide.
Highly recommend StampNation . . . the card class from Catherine Pooler . . . and my monthly Simon Says Stamp Kit which will really get some use when I finish up the videos from the class.
