Masculine card

Happy Thursday! I am still here! I decided to concentrate on cards for submissions for a while, so I don't have a lot to share at the moment. But I needed a card for my husband's uncle and made this last weekend:


I am not good at masculine cards, but this beautiful Hero Arts stamp set worked perfectly! Using the color layering technique is so much fun and easy and quick! You still have time to try it and enter this month's Hero Arts challenge! The 70 is made with Thickers. I just scored the lines with my Score-Pal for some dimension.

My Elderflowersirup is finished now - and oh so yummy! And even better, I made some Elderflower-Orange-Jelly, too and this is divine! I will share everything soon!

Have a beautiful day, thanks for still visiting me and for your sweet comments! I will catch up with you all soon!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Eine sehr, sehr schöne Karte im CAS-Stil, gefällt mir wahnsinnig gut, schlicht, aber dennoch ausdrucksstark.

Such a great manly card! I love this set for guy cards too! :> After I made my last card with this set I realized I did have a HA set that I could color layer with, just haven't' done so yet. Love seeing how you did! Hope your having fun with the summer weather!

Isn't it frustrating when you make something but can't share it with everyone quite yet...! I can only imagine the fabulous cards you've made!
Totally loving the cleaness and purity of this card! Those score lines really add dimension!
Seriously, Elderflowersirup?! I LOVE Elderflower - it's my fave summertime drink! Jealous of your jelly too ;D
