A feature of today's set is the Brogue pattern styling - I love it. I was looking for a new theme to use for a masculine set and while on my knees one day cleaning out the shoes at the bottom of the cupboard, there it was, a pair of Brogues! That beautiful leather punched pattern was just calling out to me and I had to draw up a version that I thought looks right at home on cards and stationary. You can just see the thick border pattern peeping out behind the layered card pieces. I adore that pattern! more on it later on.
This large stamp set contains many stamps that will enable you to build borders and patterns and create quirky accents for masculine cards, I think it's something a little fresh for the guys and I hope you like it!
I combined 20's style lettering with some modern typefaces for a little updated style and while you won't find a picture of 'himself in a boat' or with a toolkit in this set, you will find just the right accents to create masculine cards with an understated graphic style.
I stamped each word separately onto some different shades of red and aqua card and then punched them out with a square punch before lining them up so that the words are all centred above each other, I like how fast this card was! lol. A little background stamping and a piece of embossed cardstock for texture and I thought this was enough, DH thought so too...not one for ribbons or frills Mr B...
Hope it tickles!
