I've been showing a LOT of floral ideas for the Botanicals for You stamp set I featured this week to showcase one of the most popular Sale-A-Bration 2016 freebies (find out how to get it for free!) So I thought I'd share a couple of masculine card ideas you could also make with this versatile set. Dial down the flowers and you've still got magic!
TIP: I used my Stamp-A-Majigg to perfectly position my stamp a second time, so I could create a "drop shadow" of Pool Party ink behind my Night of Navy words. Works great!
It went so well that I tried it again on this next guy card.
Well, that time it didn't go so well, actually!
TIP: You can't see it here because I fixed it, but the shadow was over just a hair too far to the left, and there was no white background showing in the centers of the "u" in the words "for" and "you." Because the Tip Top Taupe and Early Espresso inks are both quite dark, it looked pretty bad. So I whipped out my Signo White Gel Pen and added the white back in. In this super-close-up you can tell it was added after the fact. But that's our little secret... right? I love little tips like that for fixing my stampin' boo-boos.
Thanks so much for stopping in this week to see the featured Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Botanicals for You. As I mentioned before, this one is my personal fave, so I know you'll be seeing more of it during the next 12 weeks. That's all the time this beauty will be for sale, friends, so don't delay--put in any order at my online stampin' store, and choose one free SAB reward with each $50 increment.
Recreate this card at home with these great papercrafter's tools!
