It's time for MFT's monthly Creative Challenge, and this month's theme is Make it Masculine! The MFT Blog has a complete list of participating designers, so stop by to see who's on deck. I've come up with a couple of fun 'guy' cards to share with you, so let's get started!
Die-namics Palm Tree, High-Rise Alphabet Lowercase, Sea Charms and stamps from Hello My Name Is. I stamped the name tag in white pigment ink onto my Black Licorice card base and then added a layer of corrugated 'beach sand' using the Snow Drifts Die-namics.
Blu Raspberry letters in 'dude' was die cut into the sand layer and then accented with an Orange Fizz surf board from the Die-namics Sea Charms set. The Steel Blue Palm Tree is tucked behind the sandy beach, and holding it all together is a double string of Hemp Cord, knotted several times to resemble one of those hemp bracelets that all the cool surfer dudes wear around their wrist or ankle, wink!
Die-namics Speech Bubble in Steel Blue, stamped with sentiments from Hello My Name Is and Playlist. I die cut another Speech Bubble in Blu Raspberry , tore off a smidge of the lower edge, dragged the torn edge across my white pigment ink pad to resemble foamy ocean waves and accented it with Hemp Cord and another Orange Fizz surf board.
It's Your Birthday, Dude!
Playlist and Rock On. Another one of those ah-ha moments where these MFT stamps work so well together to make a fun card even funnier!
