Masculine Monday #29 - FORE!

I knew I wanted to make a golfing themed card for this weeks Masculine Monday card but I didn't have any golfing themed stamps. Or so I thought.



I went into my box of retired stamps from Stampin' Up! and pulled out an oldie but a goodie called On The Green. I stamped it in versamark ink 6 times to cover a piece of whisper white card stock and then heat set it with white embossing powder. I then blended some walnut stain distress oxide ink all over the top and wiped the whole piece down with a cloth to remove most of the ink from the white parts.

This is a great way to make your own designer paper.

I punched out two circles and ran them through the big shot with the retired perfect polka dots EF to make golf balls. They looked a little too white against the card so I sponged them with the same walnut stain ink I used on the main piece.

The sentiment is heat embossed in white on soft suede and popped up on some craft foam. This is by far one of my most favorite way to add a sentiment to a card that has a lot going on.


Happy Stampin'
