Nature Silhouettes on vellum
This was the second masculine card we made with my group yesterday. They requested to learn how to make manly cards.
The card fold for this is really fun. The base is a quarter sheet of always artichoke. The main opening part is a 1/4" smaller so it layers inside. I also fastened the left side of the card with jumbo eyelets so that only a portion of the card opens.
I used markers to color the Nature Silhouettes images, then misted with a bit of water and stamped on vellum. I used brads to attach the vellum to the card so I wouldn't have to glue it. I hate using glue on vellum because I can always see it, so I always find another way to attach it.
Ripping, jumbo eyelets, linen thread and brads are great manly accents.
