Hello! Hello! It's Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May 2013 Release Previews. Did you find the last two days inspiring? I hope so! For Day 3, we're making projects combining Country Labels No. 4 and USA 1776.
When I sat down to make these cards, I automatically thought...masculine cards. It seemed appropriate and it's practice for me! :)
I used the US flag as inspiration for this card. I cut strips of red cardstock and adhered it to my base panel. Then I stamped and die cut the round label from Country Labels No. 4 in navy. I was about to adhere the star I die cut when I thought the middle looked very empty. So I stamped a circle in red at the center to balance things out. I was just hoping that it didn't look like Captain America's shield! lol! :)
I used the sentiment from USA 1776 and heat embossed it in silver on the bottom of the label. Then I attached everything to a kraft card base.
My second card is also pretty simple. I stamped Text It to make the background panel of my card. Then I adhered a strip of patterned paper over it. I tied some twine around it and adhered the die cut label over it. I also stamped the eagle and hand cut it. Then I attached it with some foam tape over the label.
I kept things very simple. I hope these provided you with a wee bit of inspiration for masculine cards! I know how hard those are to make. It's good to get a little bit of practice here and there. :)
Thank you for stopping by today. I'll be back again tomorrow for the DT Blog Hop. If you're all done here, please head on over to the other DT girls' blogs to leave them some love! See you again tomorrow! :)
