Thinking of You Masculine Card



A couple weeks ago I wanted a masculine thinking of you card for a friend who needed surgery. I made this card especially for him with my favorite Deep Impressions technique and Color Burst in the background. Both these techniques and products will be featured in our upcoming workshops and the friend who received this card will be part of the group learning all about them in mid October. I masked off the sides of the white cardbase and sprinkled on Merlot, Burnt Orange and Yellow Ochre Color Burst and spritzed with gold iridescent shimmer spray. After it was dry, I attached the "Thinking of You" cut with Die-Versions dies. The deer heads were pre-cut chipboard (purchased at Hobby Lobby) that I covered with Seasonings and Aged Copper embossing powders from Stampendous and stamped into with a Technique Junkies stamp while they were still molten.

I am entering this card in the Masculine challenge at Creative Card Crew and the Anything Goes challenges at Love to Scrap! and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Oh what a striking card - love the deer heads and the deep stamping technique on them, against the Brushos panel they really stand out!!
