Stampin' Up! Wood Textures DSP for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back...hopefully it hasn't been a month since you've been here...lol. This month Amy gave us the theme of "masculine" to create our card for the hop. I thought I had exhausted my masculine cards last week with the Geared Up Garage, but I still had a little gas left (see what I did there!) to create this masculine one. I'm entering it in the challenge at SIP Challenge 199 – Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

It could be used for a feminine card too...and that's what I'm doing today. Happy 10th birthday Try it On Tuesday

I decided to use the soon-retiring Wood Textures DSP for my panels. I adhered them to an Early Espresso card base. I punched a mat with the Tailored Tag punch, sponged it with Early Espresso and adhered the Copper Foil maple leaf die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I adhered the tag to the card front with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Painted Glass stamp set and, fortunately, I got it straight because the panel was already glued down!

The inside sentiment is from Humming Along which is retiring.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
