This card was made at our Stamp Club meet up this month. I love our little get togethers as they are fun, idea sharing & every month one of us gets the freebies as a host. This month was Kaszazz month, so I get to show the group something new, get their imaginations flowing, etc. I do the demonstrating for the Kaszazz month & a friend of mine does Stampin' Up! the alternative month. This way, we get a great cross section of stamps, colours, dies, embossing... the list goes on & on.
Anyway, back to the card at hand. A quick run down on what I came up with, Apart from being all Kaszazz products.... lol. The papers.... I used one of the latest designer series 12x12 sheets & cut out the "Traction Engine" & another DS I cut out "SEIZE the day", used the "Tags #3 2915" for the label, I "stamp dyed" the wide striped navy & white ribbon plus a tied checkered black & white thinner ribbon on the tag, vanilla cardstock &a fine nibbed art pen for the roughly drawn lines around the outer edge. I enjoy coming up with "male themed cards" it's a good challenge if you get bored with the flowers & lace of female cards. Let's face it, if you make cards a lot.... then you most probably have tons on female cards.... more than you have to give to friends & family for a lifetime...lol
Talking of "Challenges", I have decided to enter this one into "The Stamp Spot" Blog Challenge the month of April, as it is "Macsuline Cards and Paper craft projects".
