Masculine Hello

Ever need a "generic" masculine card?  They can be hard to find.  That's why being able to make them myself is so wonderful.  Of course, this card doesn't have to go to a man, but the colors and design are not girly so they can go to that special guy.  (this one is going to my dad)

The stamp set I used is Lacy and Lovely, but I think you'll agree with me that the card doesn't appear lacy at all.   I think it because I used neutrals and blues instead of pastels.  What do you think?

Silly me, I didn't write down which colors used.  I think they were crumb cake, chocolate chip and either Midnight Muse or Night of Navy.  I do know that I did some stamping off to get lighter shades of the neutrals.

The banner was sponged to give it some definition from the background.  Normally I would use some dimensionals and pop that puppy up, but this time I decided to leave it flat.  I really like how it turned out and I'm sure my dad will too.

Creative Blessings,

P.S.  I'm working on an overhaul of my craft room.  There are several videos I need to make, but first I need to clear off some space.  If you don't hear from me in the next couple of days, you'll know I didn't make it out.   LOL.  I've already started a draft of the blog post to show you the results.  It's titled "Shame to Serenity".  So far there's only "shame" pictures.  lol
