I’m on a yahoo group called Late Night Stampers and each week they post a challenge for you to complete that week. This week the challenge was to create a masculine card. Well, I often fall back on Lovely as a Tree as a “masculine” set since I don’t have many stamps that are explicitly for the guys. But then I thought of the Plane and Simple stamp set that just came out in the Occasions Mini.
The style of this set is this cool mix of aged and masculine without the need for overt testosterone (like many of the grilling or motercycle stamps – which are not bad images, just less of my style). Plus add in that my hubby and I are both pilots and I come from a family of pilots going back to my grandparents – and so you know I’m going to be a sucker for stamp sets that have airplanes in them. 🙂
Anyway, enough about me…. how about a card?
I think my favorite thing about this card is the popped up airplane on the Whisper White cardstock that has been sponged with Baja Breeze ink so that it looks like it is in the clouds. It was totally worth the cutting it in my opinion. :) And the cutting wasn’t really as bad as you might think either. You just want to make sure you have a pair of scissors with smaller blades so it is easy to manuever (some kind of paper snips like this).
