Masculine collage!

This card incorporates every media you can think of.  the card is made from deep burgundy paper from Die Cut with a View.  The patterned background is paper from Die Cut with a View with pencil colored flourish outlines and edged in burgundy ink.  The central image is created using two stamps:  the parchment from Third Coast Rubber Stamps and a Venitian scene from Stampin Up! stamped in Ranger archival Sepia ink on a marble background paper from The Paper Company.  The parchment corners were double stamped, cut out and adhered with raised ahdesive dots to create a 3D effect.  The fancy floourish corner is from Inkadinkado.  The tag is die-cut from burgundy paper using the Spellbinders Fancy Labels set.  The background copper edged tag is a sticker from K&Company/E.K. Success; which was topped with a die-cut circle from gold mirrored paper from The Paper Company with a rub-on texted message and flower from American Crafts.

Although I purposefully omitted glitter and bling the card being for men ... did I miss media?


  1. Fabulous card John. You worked it

  2. This card has such a rich, beautiful feeling to it. I actually have that StampinUp set but often find myself at a loss on how to make it work well. Very nice work John!
