Greetings Blog Friends!! What a busy day it has been. You’ll find this hard to believe but I can count the number of masculine cards I’ve made in the last couple of years on two hands. I guess the planets have aligned because I’m back with another masculine card. Yikes! They are the tough ones because I can’t simply slather pearls and lace on them but for those of you who thanked me for the brief break from pink – this is for you! Waltzingmouse Stamps welcomes a new release and this set is called My Island. I love the sentiment You Bring Me Sunshine – it’s so very true!
The rays of sunshine are framed in Spellbinders™ Card Creator S5-136 A2 Fancy Weave. I simply tucked it under my burlap ribbon and embellished the bottom with pearls. To corral my ribbon I used Spellbinders™ S5-138 Octagon Strips and Accents and simply wove the loose ends of my bow up and down through the available openings. I finished off with a masculine embellishment at the bottom – not a flower, but a piece from Spellbinders™ Ribbon Buckles. That’s it short and sweet – this goes in the pile for when some occasion calls for a guy card!
