Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #132 - Marsha's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge
This week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge is hosted by Marsha Reed. It's a fun Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge and is coming in so handy for me. I had to make a masculine card and so I was all ready for this challenge.
I decided to use the new Pocketful of Sunshine bundle. This is perfect for both feminine and masculine cards, especially if you're intending to slip a gift card or money into the card. Since I was making this for a young man, a nice denim pocket against a woodgrain background seemed perfect. I decided that the stitching would show up better if I heat embossed it in white. Since I sponged around the Marine Mist pocket to give it dimension and make parts darker, the white really "popped". I really liked the look of the Copper Ribbon on the tag as well.
The pocket on the front of the card isn't open. I used it to hold props such as the birthday tag and the "cool" sunglasses. On the inside, however, I made sure the pocket was open and ready to receive the gift card on which I had planned.
This was such a fun card to create. I hope you've enjoyed it and will check out the wonderful cards created by the other Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
