Less Is More - Masculine (Card 2)

Right, here we go with my second LESS IS MORE card - seem to have got stuck in landscape mode ......


Now I think this one is quite cute, but perhaps cute is not exactly right for masculine!  And perhaps the punched border is a bit too fussy ....... anyway, stamps are from three Woodware sets, one fishing (the sign post), one gardening (the shed) and one greetings (the words).  I stamped the sign, masked it to stamp the shed behind, then added the words.  A teensy wash of distress ink for colour.  Then I simply used the waste diamonds from the punched strip for a bit of decoration.

Toad's reaction was "that's different".


Hugs, Sxx

Yes, it's nice but so far I prefer number one. I like the shed but not so keen on the border.Hazel x

Mandi said...

Great card
I think the border is ok, maybe the additions of the diamonds at the bottom is what's throwing you
Great work though Squirrel can see you are REALLY thinking lol

I think the punched border is perfect, it sort of gives the illusion of a fence....Just had another look..its perfect.

This is a great card Squirrel, I even like the border. It works because it's more geometric than fussy IMO! Can't believe how many male cards you made, off to check out some others!
