Inspired By Stamping: Masculine Sympathy Card


Hi, all!  I'm back with a very CAS card that uses products from the Inspired By Stamping online store.  Today, we are featuring masculine sympathy cards...take a peek at my creation...


This card was simple to make, but a bit difficult to execute because there's no room for messing up.  I started by stamping the lines from the Background Basics Lines stamp set in gray ink onto a white card base.  I then stamped a sentiment from the Vintage Dress Form stamp set on top in black. Some lines were dry embossed on either side of the stamped lines, and three black enamel dots were added.


Some noteworthy points about this card: First, make sure your clear blocks and acrylic stamps are cleaned well.  This will help you line up your sentiment perfectly.  Secondly, keeping the colors neutral help to convey the tone of the card.  The sentiment isn't necessarily a sympathy sentiment, but the colors tell the story.  Third, less is best when embellishing a masculine card.  So, what do you think of this one?  I'd love to hear your comments below!


That's all for me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by--your visits make my day!  I hope you grab all these goodies from the Inspired By Stamping store today!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
