I started off with a white piece of 8 x8 cardstock. Then I through the masks I have and decided which would suit a male card! I picked out 4 all of them from Splodgeaway!!
1st I used the tread like one with DI Tumbled Glass
2nd I then used the animal print with DI Scattered Straw
3rd I used a Chicken wire with DI Budled Sage
4th I used the clock one with DI Tea Dye
I wasn't sure if this was going to work although I have these masks I've never used them before! So I decided to us the Owl. Now I've seen him used and he looked magnificent! I was just praying that this would turn out if only marginally like the ones I'd seen it would be ok!
So out with the Owl and i used him with DI Brushed Corduroy. Then I cut him out with a xCut oval die and then edged it with a brown Promarker. After this I distressed the edges slightly with the DI Brushed Corduroy.
So all that needed to be done was fix it all together. So I matted the background onto a piece of brown card stock then I wrapped a length of jute ribbon around both the background and the brown card and fixed it at an angle. So next came the little fellow, he's so darn cute, and I fixed him in the middle of the card with double sided foam pads! All that needed to be done was fix it onto an 8 x 8 scalloped card. I had my card for a male done except the Happy Birthday and the name of the recipient. I don't know if you've noticed but I do like to put their name on the card.
Using Clarity boxed alphabet I stamped the greeting and the name in DI brushed corduroy cand fixed them onto the card with foam pads. Just an insert inside with a cheeky greeting and all was done.
I hope I haven't been too long winded about this ( I have haven't I) and you have enjoyed your visit here. So Thankyou for visiting its very much appreciated.
