Tropical Party Makes a Great Masculine Card

Featured Artist at Pals Paper Arts

Today's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is to create a "simple" masculine card ~ always a challenge!

This card uses textured card stock in Sahara Sand, Old Olive, and Soft Suede. The branches from the Tropical Party stamp set were embossed with VersaMark and Clear Embossing powder. The image is stamped on Confetti White using Stampin' Write Markers ~ our markers are an easy way to give images a multi colored look.

I embellished the card with Linen Thread and our beautiful new Antique Brads. Just the right amount of frills for a man!

Make sure to check out the other creations by the Pals Paper Arts Design Team and give this challenge a try yourself!

Have a great day!
God Bless,
