Masculine thanks

This is the final card I made for the fall wedding, and this is for the Best Man. I wanted to include the blue and ivory pumpkins, and still keep it masculine. This is what I came up with.

I used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to accomplish the masculine look, dry embossing the top matting piece along with the top panel using a woodgrain embossing folder. To add more textures to the masculine card, I distressed the edges of the panel using my  Zutter Distrezz-it-All machine, which makes that job so easy. I sponged navy along the distressed edges and attached to the card on foam strips. I then added the sponged die cut tree along with the pumpkins, which bring in the theme and other colours from the wedding. For the sentiment I die cut the label in the navy and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.

I so enjoyed making Carol's cards, and I am pleased she liked my ideas. Making for others in one of the joys of being a card maker.

Thanks for visiting today ... see you next time.
