Masculine Birthday

Conner's birthday festivities have finally died down and I got a chance to spend some time getting reacquainted with my stamps today. I went looking for a challenge to get me inspired and I came across The Paper Players Challenge #83. Their challenge was to create a Clean & Simple Masculine card, right up my alley :)

I started with an A2 card base and added a 3 /4 inch strip of Crumb Cake cardstock that was embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (my go-to folder for masculine cards). Then, I added a Basic Black piece of Ric Rac that was die from the Tasteful Trim die. I stamped the frame from Elementary Elegance in Crumb Cake ink and the guitar image in Basic Black on scrap paper, fussy cut it and adhered it with a pop dot. I finished the card off with a simple silver brad.

Today I also have for you The Outlawz CAS Challenge: To use an animal OR animal print.
Join us, we'd love to see your creation!!!

Fabulous card, Maureen. I love that you took a feminine flourish and added the guitar and made it look masculine because of your colors and the rick rack edge. FABULOUS. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

Maureen, both of your cards are fantastic! Your guitar card completey rocks, though! I love how you paired the stamp sets together, the goegeous neutrals you used and that rockin' ric rac trim. Awesome idea for a cAS-tastic masculine card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

Yes your card is pretty simple did you use debossing or embossing on design up on the card?
