Masculine card.....

This week seems to be disappearing quicker than normal - I guess that's because I have a week off work!  I've been away for a few days visiting my parents in Lincolnshire which means no crafting but lots of buying of craft supplies!  My mum is a card maker so it's always fun to chat about ideas and see the cards she has been making.  We also managed to fit in quite a lot of shopping - mainly stamps, dies, inks, adhesives, card, paper, foam for making our own stamps, and lots more besides.  All essential, of course.

I have managed to find time today to create a card for this week's challenge at "Less is More" the theme is Masculine.  I've spent days thinking about this - below is what I came up with (using some of my new dies).

I used the following:

Uniko Studios Background Builders, Round in Circles stamps
Ranger Archival Black Ink
Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Wax - Cast Bronze
XCut dies Chronology Cogs
Clearly Besotted Geometric Style  Sentiment Stamp.



  1. A beautiful Card Elaine, love the detail.

  2. I love those gears. They make a great masculine card.
