As You See It Challenge #245

It’s a challenging recipe for the As You See It Challenge beginning with Masculine, embossing folder, die cut, twine and earth tones. I was stumped but when I saw Buddy Judy’s card I was inspired to give this challenge a try. Using inks from Kaleidacolor Autumn leaves rainbow ink pad, I inked up and cut down squares to 1-1/4″ and cut them in half for a triangle….my math did not fail me! Then I needed to use my math again and cut off 1-7/8″ from my kraft card base for my decorative triangles on the inner portion of the card. Using brown cardstock and Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder, adhered to the front panel. I then decided on a Spellbinder’s Labels 14 die and stamped the sentiment and party hat from Gina K Designs’ Dino-Mite stamp set.

Inside of card.

Almost forgot the twine….I ran a line of glue to the edge of my triangle design and stuck my twine down. 🙂 I do believe that is everything: masculine, herringbone embossing folder, labels 14 die cut, autumn inks!

  2. The variegated triangles are a great feature, giving warmth and richness to your design. Thanks for playing along with us again at As You See It Challenge.

  3. Gayle, this is a great card! It definitely works for masculine and that side piece with the triangles is wonderful and adds such interest.

  4. That’s an awesome look for a masculine card, Gayle! I love the herringbone embossing on the front and earth tones that you chose! Thanks for using our recipe at As You See It Challenges.

  5. Those triangles are an inspired way to create a warm look yet keep the card masculine. You did a superb job on this card Gayle. I love it all.
