Still in steamy Singapore, but now very close to the end of my stay....sniff!! (Sadly I land at 9pm tonight in Sydney). Thought I'd share a couple of male cards today that I made when inspired by THIS card. I had a lot of fun putting this together and guessing the dimensions. Here are my 2 versions....
I had to make a couple of minor adjustments due to the fact I do not have the Woodgrain BGS. I substituted in embossing folders with my Cuttlebug (Distressed Stripes and Branches). The idea was to give the impression of bark on a tree seen here.
I also did not have any twine, so I raided my old DMC embroidery cottons and used them on an eyelet and a 1" circle punch. I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds and stamped off some River Rock to get the speckled background. A simple slip knot and 1/2 a Mini Glue dot behind and all stuck securely!!
I was so very happy with the way these turned out and even moreso that I had a couple more male cards in my stash.
I should have my next post sent from Sydney. I think I am going to have fun adjusting to the cold again after dealing with 28-33deg C heat and humidity.....back to a chilly Sydney Winter....BRRRrrrrrr.
