You Inspire Me

Hello friends...
Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday...
Today I have a masculine card for you... 
I struggle a lot with Masculine cards... Its difficult for me to make cards without flowers or ribbons & that too in masculine colors... Whenever I think of masculine cards browns & navy colors automatically come to my mind...
But this time I thought of using a different color combination... so I have used Cracked Pistachio & Black Soot Distress Inks with gold embossing on my card...   & I love how it turned out...

As you can see in the above pic that I couldn't resist adding a little bit of  glitter & sparkle on my card... LOL....

Project Instruction:

Take a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base & ink the edges with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Stamp World Map Cling Stamp Set on a white cardstock, trim to 4" x 5 1/4" Black Soot Distress Ink. Mix some Ranger Transparent Texture Paste with a little Black Soot Distress Ink & apply it to the stamped panel using Memory Box Diamond Stencil. Sprinkle a little Holographic glitter on the wet texture paste & let it dry completely & then adhere it to the card front with foam adhesive.

Stamp the sentiment from You Inspire Me Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock with Versamark Ink & heat emboss it with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. Trim it & mat it on a slightly larger cardstock whose edges are embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

Die cut white cardstock with the decorative die from Everyday Heros Die & cut it in half. Ink it with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink & adhere to the sentiment panel. Adhere this to the card front with foam adhesive. Add some  rhinestones to embellish.
