Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #128 - Heidi's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge
It's my turn as hostess for this week's challenge. What fun! Welcome to my Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge. I love the opportunity to make these masculine cards. With my extensive family, most of whom are male, it is great to have more from which to choose.
It's funny the way things happen. When I saw the Coffee Cafe bundle my first reaction was that I didn't need it. How many people would I send coffee-oriented cards? But then second thoughts smothered those first thoughts and I added it to my list. How many of my friends and relatives drink coffee or something else that could be made with this set? Most of them. How awesome is the Designer Paper for this bundle? Absolutely "frickin" awesome. I love the colours, the designs---everything about the paper.
Using the bundle for a masculine card made me think a bit more about what would make it masculine. The colours, of course. And so I used a base of Early Espresso, added a layer of Crumb Cake, added a layer of the gorgeous wood-grain, primarily Early Espresso designer paper and then added a large square of Crumb Cake and three small squares along the right side. Into the large square I added another piece of the wood-grain designer paper. Onto that I adhered the cup of coffee, all dressed up with a sentiment and stamped coffee beans. Into the small squares I added (from top to bottom) a small coffee cup, a leafy branch with coffee beans, and a small coffee pot, all fussy-cut from the designer paper.
I love the colours in this card and know that it will be appreciated. Especially when it has been opened to expose the Starbucks gift card inside. Coffee really does help.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful cards created by our Watercooler Artists over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
