A Sawyer?


I have another masculine card to share today.  
Last year there was a magazine that had a wonderful selection of masculine stamps in it, and all the images I have used on this card came from that set.

The images and sentiment were all stamped and embossed with copper ep.

A few  touches of colour for the tool handles and tool box.

Loved how the saw blades embossed!

A layer of burlap ribbon overlaid with a narrow red one, and a doodled edging and it was finished.

I am linking this to:

Great card Maxine. Really like the touch of the hessian on it. I have this set as well and it's amazing for masculine cards

I so love the copper embossing powder and what fabulous images....great masculine card x.

brenda said...

Copper embossing power is a favourite of mine Maxine, think I prefer it to gold as it's so rich on colour. A super card and the hessian all adds to the masculine feel.

I love copper embossing and this works so well with your card. What a great set of stamps, that tool box is wonderful and such a useful stamp to have around. Love the addition of the burlap - why do I never think of doing something like this?
