WOW! You're the Best! - another Masculine Card
In the meantime I started working on samples for my masculine card class and found a card created by Melany Watson. The hammer stamp is part of the Every Little Bit stamp set. (I got this set last spring for free based on my sales during Sale-a-Bration. It is a really cute set, so I should use it more often.) I changed things up a bit and added some embossed aluminum foil. To get this effect, you glue aluminum foil to a piece of card stock with an anywhere glue stick then run it through the embossing folder. Here's my finished "construction"
I gave one of these cards to our neighbor Mike who helped us move the incredibly heavy sleeper sofa into our completed room. He also works at Home Depot, so I thought he'd appreciate the card.
The kids are loving the room. It's 13' x 23' and with only the sofa in it, they are running around having a great time. We still have to get a television in there. And we told the kids we'd get a game system for them, too. After all this work, I'm hoping to keep my living room in better shape. Well, maybe.
