A Masculine Card

I made a masculine card for the current Avery Elle Challenge...





...using my Modern Leaves stamp set:


I heat-embossed the large scribbled leaf onto patterned paper and punched out circles from this and other pps. After I had inked all edges, I adhered them to a kraft cardstock panel. The "hello" is from the same set and also heat-embossed with white embossing powder. I inked the edges of my panel and machine-stitched some messy seams. Then I adhered the panel to my cardbase and added some ink drops. Finally I adhered the wood veneer. I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting!

Vanessa

supplies:
Avery Elle Modern Leaves stamp set - Studio Calico pp, wood veneer, Mister Hueys - Tsukineko ink - Ranger Distress Ink
