Masculine card

Hi friends.  I am popping in again this afternoon for my second post.  It is a snowy, cold Saturday here so I have spent some time in my craft room creating. 

I always forget to stamp on my DSP so I wanted to incorporate that into my masculine card this time.  I also wanted the strip under the main panel to be stamped directly on the cardstock base but it didn't work out that way the first time stamping.   Then I tried lining it up again with my stamp-a-ma-jig and that didn't work either.  UGH!!   It was actually a pretty easy boo boo to fix up, as you can see.  Not the original look I was going for but it works.

  6. This is a wonderful card for a guy!

  7. Hi Kristie. Love that plane image ... and with the neutral colors your card has a vintage feel. Great idea to stamp on DP ... I never think to do that either. Now I'm going to have to go right to my studio and give it a try! :) Love the way you worked out your stamping boo boo to create a fabulous banner - so clever! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS! Loll xx

  8. you have created the perfect guy card, kristie!! i'm impressed by how you fixed your "boo-boo"... so clever!

  9. I like this card and I like how you have stamped on your DP - great idea. Love the stamp and the neutral tones - very masculine! Just perfect. Thanks so much for playing along at ATCAS! xx

  10. I love stamping on DP and I love your masculine card! Shhh I voted for your green card, loved it!

  11. What a super card! Love how you stamped on the dp.

  12. Oh my ,I really really like this and is the perfect male card ! x

  13. Excellent job here, Kristie! You always do masculine cards so well and I need to take inspiration from you when I have trouble (which is every time I try to do masculine). LOVE how you stamped directly on the dsp, and your boo-boo fix is genius! Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Love masculine cards and love how you designed this one. I like when you can fix a boo boo and no one can tell...unless we do in telling the story of the card that gives it personality;)

  15. What a great card , love those stamps ! Thanks so much for joining us at Addicted to CAS and good luck.
