Man Card - Father's Day

Man cards have always been hard for me to create - mostly because I have limited manly stamps and you can’t embellish them to within an inch of their life - limiting, very limiting… LOL.
Innovative Stamp Creating is launching a new release of stamps on Monday February 9th. One of the stamp sheets has great “man” images - it‘s titled Men of Wisdom.

Man Card - Father’s Day

Close up of the Cracked Glass

The automobile is cracked glass and the two printed background panels are the same stamp - one is embossed and then sponged with black and the other is stamped with black. The diamond pattern is stamped from the same background stamp with White Craft ink and then cut out.

It’s really cold here today and we still have tons of snow on the ground - sounds like a great day to stay inside and stamp!


The Stuff:
Stamps - Men of Wisdom (Innovative Stamp Creations)
Paper - Black and White cardstock
Ink - Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Ranger), Onyx Black Versafine, VersaMark
Other - UTEE, Ultra Fine Clear EP (Ranger), Spellbinder Tags
