Do you struggle with masculine cards? Yes, masculine cards seem to be a problem for many stampers. Including me! While searching Pinterest, for some ideas, I came across a cute card by Rachel Tessman. I liked the scored lines above and below the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP). I changed the colors, layout and added the pearls to my design. Thanks, Rachel!
For a slightly different look, I turned the piece of Wood Textures DSP over and used the other side. Yup, I like it, but I think I prefer my original card. What do you think?
Cutting and Scoring Instructions: Basic Black (card base) 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″, Basic Black (layer behind Wood Textures DSP) 1-1/8″ x 3″; Very Vanilla (inside card) 4″ x 5-1/4″, Very Vanilla 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″; Early Espresso 3″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 3/4″, 7/8″, 2-1/4″, 2-3/8″, and 2-1/2″; Wood Textures DSP (front of card) 1″ x 3″ and (inside of card) 1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Cutting Instructions: Basic Black cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base); Basic Gray cardstock 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″; Silver Glimmer paper 4-3/8″ x 3-1/8″; Whisper White cardstock 4-1/4″ x 3″; Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″ (inside card)
Cutting Instructions: Night of Navy cardstock 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″, (card base); Silver Foil Sheet 4″ x 4″, (layer on card base); Watercolor Paper 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″, (color with Brusho, stamp with Happy Birthday sentiment, heat emboss with silver powder, and layer on Silver Foil Sheet); Watercolor Paper scrap, (stamp flower, heat emboss with silver powder, color with Brusho, mount on card).
Just by sprinkling a heavier amount of Brusho in a few areas and spreading the color out with my Aqua Painter, I was able to achieve this great color variation. My only disappointment was not being able to use my favorite Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker. When trying to use it, it continued to move the Brusho color and I was already happy with the results. So, no Wink of Stella on this card.
I do hope you will take a leap and give this great new product a try! I am absolutely LOVING it and I know you will too!
