I needed a masculine card, and in the end used two of my oldest stamps and a NBUS die.
I cut some TH embossed kraft paper, and gold embossed the single tree from the SU set Lovely as a Tree to the left of the paper.
I had in my promise box a trial cut from a (NBUS) Couture Creations Intri-cutz die from the Savvy Backgrounds series, that I tried against the kraft I was using and didn't like it - way to dull to make the most of the die cut, so I applied Gold Delicata ink direct to the paper and loved the result.
I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment, cut around it to form a tag, and stained it with TH Tea Dye DI. to 'age' it , then attached it with some twine.
The kraft layer was then attached to a deep red/brown base, which really seemed to make the card come to life.
I am linking this to:
(the die I had for ages before trialing it, then the piece took forever to use...)
Thank you for visiting - may your day be blessed
