It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week we are being challenged to create masculine cards. I don’t have a lot of masculine sets in my arsenal, but I did pull out the Traveler set to create this retirement card. Enjoy!
- Depth! To make it appear as if the Locomotive image was coming from the woods, it was popped atop the original image using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The plume of steam was stamped onto Whisper White, popped up on dimensionals, and extended beyond the oval.
- Texture! The new Boho Chic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds texture. In retrospect, it may be a tad busy for this particular card. However, the longer I look at it, the more I like it.
- Trees! Lovely As a Tree is still lovely after all these years. I snipped out the pines and popped them up on dimensionals. I do this a lot with this image. They frame the oval perfectly.
As with many of my cards, I make them for specific people. This card is for my husband, who is retiring in 3 weeks from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Rail Road after 42 years of service! I thought the locomotive image was perfect.
I have been so busy the past few weeks with the mini-Muffins. They are heading off to their forever homes, and it has been so emotional. Kash and Mira are in Chicago.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and pictures of the mini-Muffins! Won’t you let me know in today’s comments? Your comments are important to me! And remember…if you ever have any questions about the cards I create, I am only an email away! Until next time…
