Amidst all the excitement and hubbub of the Online Extravaganza that started today, over at the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration blog, we are sharing some different ideas for those masculine cards we all need throughout the year.  This was my contribution

This was one of those cards where you just start slapping things  and in the end you call it good. Smile

I started by embossing a So Saffron card base with the Arrows Embossing folder (which happens to be only $5 with today’s doorbuster sale!) and then colored the embossed parts using Night of Navy ink and my brayer.

(check out a video for how to color with a brayer here)

I added some Night of Navy designer paper and some burlap ribbon to break up the embossed pattern…. you know, gotta have some burlap on all your masculine cards. Smile

Finally I used my Work of Art stamp set to help with my central sentiments.

Like I said, a little bit of this and a little bit of that… but sometimes that is all you need.
