Welcome back to Man Week!
We are featuring great cards for guys (and tips for making them) all week long here on the Technique Tuesday Blog. And today we've got a fun one from Daniela Dobson.
Here are a few words from Daniela about her card. Take it away, Daniela!
"I added gesso to the patterned paper with a palette knife. Once it was dry I embossed it with the star embossing folder from another manufacturer. The star die-cut (cut with the Nested Stars steel dies) fit perfectly in the center of the embossed star. I die cut three stars (also with the Nested Stars dies) that I stapled together and added a button to the center. I added the jute bow under the star."
And her sentiment is sure fun! Daniela die-cut the large label with Technique Tuesday's Label die and the happy word with the Say It - Happy steel dies. The additional words were stamped with the Say It - Happy stamp set.
One of the cool things about Daniela's card is the rough and natural feel about it. Jute really helps with that. It's a great embellishment to use when making masculine cards, while ribbon tends to work better on feminine cards.
Speaking of jute, here is another card from the Technique Tuesday Inspiration Vault. This card uses jute and burlap!
