For the Guys!

I am in need of a few masculine type birthday cards soon so today I worked with a stencil from Stampinback called Flagstones which I thought resembled the hide of a giraffe. Along with that background I also used the giraffe images and sentiment from the Stampinback Sheet 138B.


Both the stencil and the stamps I used are available at I Brake For Stamps. I used Gina K. Designs Ivory and Black card stock and also used Gina K. Designs Warm Cocoa and Black inks on this card. After layering the main panel onto black I then added the ribbon before I adhered it to the Ivory card base.

Well, not a lot of time to stamp this week but at least I got couple done towards my supply of birthday cards.

Hope you are having a good week and here we are having spring like weather. Hurray!

God bless,
Verna
