Card Patterns Sketch 113. I am way too late to enter the challenge but this idea has been percolating in my mind for a while. When I saw the half circle at the top of the sketch, I immediately thought of the ship's wheel idea I had seen on several cards online.
Question of the Day:
Do you find it difficult (like I do) to make cards for men? What are your favorite stamp sets for masculine cards? Leave your answer in the comments. I'd love to hear from you.
Stamping Vogue Tips:
- Use your Circle Scissors Plus to cut the circle for the ship's wheel. Then cut the circle in half and use the Word Window punch to create the "handles."
- Make your own background paper by stamping images randomly on card stock. Then emboss, sponge the edges, and spritz with the Color Spritzer tool.
- Use Paper Snips to trim the focal images.
- Finish it off with Bakers twine and Antique Brads.
