I made today's card for a masculine card swap. We all need cards for the men in our lives, but sometimes it's hard to make a card without flowers or ribbon or other doodads, right? My card is made with products from the Best Route Suite on pages 52 and 53 of the annual catalog.
I embossed a 3-3/4" by 5" Blueberry Bushel Card Stock mat with the Maps Etc. Embossing Folder. I adhered that to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Pineapple Grove Card Stock panel and then onto a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base.
Next, made a banner from a 1" strip of Best Route Designer Series Paper using the Banner Triple Punch. I adhered that to the back of a 3" by 4" piece of Best Route DSP and onto the card. I adhered a 1/2" by 2" strip of another piece of Best Route DSP to the card front.
I stamped the map image and sentiment from the "En Route" stamp set in Pineapple Grove and Blueberry Bushel Inks onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with a square Stitched Shapes Framelit. I adhered this to a larger Pineapple Grove Card Stock square, also cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit. I adhered this element to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
To finish the card, I added two of the cute Best Route Enamel Shapes to the card.
I think this would be a great card for a teen-aged or young adult guy, don't you?
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see another of my card swaps.
