Card A Day Blog Post: Just For Men

This weeks theme for The Card A Day Blog is, "Just For Men," and this is my card that I created. This card will probably find it's way in the box of Operation Write Home cards that I will be sending off soon.


My card was based on a stamp I had from Inkadinkado. Here is how I put it all together.

First I started off with a white 5.5"x4.25" card base. I then added a piece of 5.25"x4" patterned paper from the "The Guy Stack", from "Die Cuts With A View." I wrapped a piece of brown and white baker's twine from one side to the other four times, then spread them apart as seen on the picture, then adhering the ends to the back of the patterned paper. 

On a piece of 1" x 4" dark brown cardstock, I stamped my gears stamp with Versamark, and then used gold embossing powder, applied heat with my heat gun to emboss it. I then adhered that to a piece of 1.25" x 4.25"  medium brown cardstock. I then attacked that to the left hand side of my card over the baker's twine using dimensional tape.

To add a little more to my card I added a metal wheel brad to the right of my gear panel on top of where the baker's twine cross. 

I didn't notice this until I went to post this, but I seemed to have used the same patterned paper and baker's twine that I used on the card for my previous post...lol! I really do like that paper...:-)

I hope you enjoyed my newest creation, and if you would like, please leave me comment. As always, they are truly appreciated. Make sure to enter the monthly challenge on the Card A Day Blog for a chance to win a prize.
