A masculine card, for that special guy...

It is hard to find a card that would really impress and please a guy...but here is a card I made that may fit the bill!  Use with almost any occasion...just by changing the greeting to match!   I used Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set for the greeting.  It has 24 stamps and includes all the holidays and phrases I need!   Plus...each one fits perfectly with the 'word window' punch!   (All products used are listed at end of my posts.)

The Nature Silhouettes images are stamped on watercolor paper, using a stamp-a-ma-jig.
I first masked out the 'moon' with a punched post-it-note circle and then water colored the 'sunset' using my aqua painter.  I then stamped and embossed my images, using black StazOn ink and black embossing powder, and heat set it.   - Micki

Micki's Stamping Tip:
  •   The greeting is stamped onto a piece of scrap...left from trimming my finished 'sunset' down to size!
  •   I use post-it-notes to protect background areas when I don't want the whole image stamped a    second time...and only need to repeat with  the 'extended' tree branch and grasses.
