fall to layout 23

Hi! I found this card sitting on my desk after I had cleaned off the clutter and realized I had never photographed it to post for you! That never happens, mostly because I'm creating cards the same day I post them. Clean & Simple Stamping had a new Fall To Layout to try and this is the card I came up with using the sketch - do you like it? I thought I'd try using Kraft cardstock and some Blue Bayou paper and make a man card. I pasted the paper, put on the ribbon (without a bow, no less) and then I needed something circular to put in the top corner and see what happened? Yes! Another scallop with scallop doodle art. That's not going to a man, I can tell you that. So the quest continues...


recipe -
paper: kraft, bayou blue cardstock
accessories: love & happiness rub-ons, blue bayou double stitched grosgrain ribbon, vintage brads, scallop punch, stampin' dimensionals

  3. Ha ha ha, I hear you about creating that truly masculine card! It's a real challenge for me too! But I love this simple beauty! Thanks for the link to Clean & Simple Stamping!! I need to check it out!

  4. I love your card Karen! It's simple, but elegant. Good luck with the quest to create a male card. It's definitely not an easy task.
