Welcome to our next challenge with the SU! Only Challenges Blog!  The current challenge is to make a Masculine Card.  This past weekend I was at a scrapbook retreat near Hershey, PA and had access to some stamp sets I don't own so I was excited to use this stamp set for this Masculine Challenge.  So, I hope you enjoy this card and find some inspiration to create your own Masculine card to share with the SU! Only Challenges Blog.

Masculine Card

Masculine CardThe base for this card is Very Vanilla Card Stock with a layer of Summer Starfruit.  Then I took a piece of Soho Subway Designer Series Paper layered behind Early Espresso Core'dinations Cardstock embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder with a corner ripped off and further distressed using the Stampin' Sanding System. On a piece of Very Vanilla cut out using the Square Framelit, I stamped the Moose image from the Walk in the Wild Stamp Set.  To ink the image, I used the Summer Starfruit and Old Olive Stampin' Markers for the grass then I colored the body of the moose with Early Espresso and the Antlers with Crumb Cake.  Behind the stamped Moose image, I off-set a layer with the Old Olive Card Stock.  The accents I added are a small square of the  1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon and Designer Naturals Buttons.
