I was so excited about this card. I had seen a similar one on a message board quit a while ago and have had my own monocramatic vision in my mind for a long time.
This will go out to a dear friend of ours who will be having his special day in November.
It is always so hard for me to come up with a masculine card....
mine always seem to end up on the "girly side!"
However, this one is quite elegant and masculine at the same time.
This easel card is done in shades of brown with an emphasis on the bronze, sepia, and golden tones.
The primary background paper is from the DCWV "Tattered Time" paper stack.
The mats are layered in browns, and the cityscapes (PS) are cut in
gold and bronze metallic papers @ 6 and 7"
with a shadow background. They are also popped for added dimension.
A computer generated sentiment and MS branches that are punched from the same papers
complete the front of this card.
The inside is relatively simple -
Matted sentiment, buttons and twine added, edges inked and corners rounded -
VOILA!! A finished project that is masculine and yet elegant.
I made a few of this card and will keep them handy for whenever I
need this type of card. The sentiments will change with the occasion.
