Never Enough Male Cards

I don’t know about you, but for one reason or another, I never seem to have enough male cards on hand.  As a result, over the next few weeks using the sketches, I’m endeavouring to try and do both a male and female card in an attempt to bolster my stash. But the question still remains as to why male cards seem to be the ones that disappear the fastest?

This weeks sketch was

  1. Firstly, use Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody and the En Route DSP, which are all 1/8 inch smaller from the card base up.
  2. Secondly, The strip of Gray Granite is 2 inches wide and as long as the card base, this has also been embossed with the Maps Etc Embossing Folder.
  3. Then, on the Whisper White cardstock pieces, which are 1-inch x 2 3/8 inches, stamp the pictures and sentiment in matching colours to the cardstock and as the layers. The Blueberry Bushel layer is then 1/8 inch bigger on all sides (These are adhered with dimensionals).
  4. Finally, I finished off using some of the embellishments that co-ordinate with this suite.

I made this additional card in a similar manner, however, some slight variations are:

  1. Firstly, I embossed the background and stamped the Gray Granite strip with the map stamp from the suite,
  2. After that, I used the sentiment and punched this out with the Everyday Label Punch.
