TIME! For A Card

  
Hi

I have a masculine themed card to show you today.


The clock stamp and sentiment are from a Stampin' Up set called Sense of Time - a fabulous set for making those cards for men!!!!  

The embossing is made using brown card and a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called Clockworks.  After running it through my Sizzix Big Shot, I lightly inked the surface with embossing ink and brushed it with Bronze Perfect Pearls. 

To finish it off I decided to add some garden string, which I think adds some interesting texture and is more masculine than ribbon. 


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz - Embossing
The Stamp Man - Embossing
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Tons of Texture (use at least two different types of texture, I've used embossing and garden string)
Cards for Men - Embossing


RECIPE:

Image & Sentiment: Sense of Time Set from Stampin' up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Ranger Clear Embossing Ink
Paper & Card: From my Stash
Tools: Clockworks Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and Nesties Small & Large Circles with Sizzix Big Shot.  Stampin' Up Corner Rounder
Others: Distressing Tool, Perfect Pearls and Garden String


Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.

Hugs

What a fab card! I love how you dressed up the embossing. I have that folder in the mail and I can't wait to use it. I'll have to figure out how to do it when I don't have the supplies. Great inspiration!
