Simon Says.......Make it Masculine!

wed-newchallenge-header
It's Wednesday!  Time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!


This week we're asking you to Make It Masculine, and the design team are using products from CAS-ual Fridays or Waffle Flower.  I chose a set by Waffle Flower called Pattern Play that could be used for either masculine or feminine, and made 2 cards.

supplies: Waffle Flower Pattern Play, Simon's Khaki and Green Apple Inks, Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut set, Memory Box Meadow Leaf die, beige and Simon's Apple Green cardstock, Prima button, May Arts twine 

I think using either stripes or plaids on a masculine card works, and I also try to keep my design fairly simple and use natural colors.

supplies: Waffle Flower Pattern Play,  Hero Arts Tide Pool, Green Hills, and Latte Inks, Impression Obsession Greetings Top Edgers die, Teresa Collins wood dots, brown and cream cardstock

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher
