Crumb Cake Father's Day

Masculine cards are often a problem, but two new A La Carte stamps from Stampin Up make cards for the chaps easy!  The first, using the motorcycle stamp (£7.95) from the Mini catalogue, is stamped in crumb cake ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  I've distressed the cardstock with the spritzer tool and crumb cake marker, and sponged the edges, again with crumb cake.  The card base uses crumb cake cardstock, and the larger mat uses the striped paper from the Neutrals designer paper stack, embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.  The paper stack is fabulous value, with great co-ordinating patterns, and emobssing it makes it feel like fabric!  The sentiment is from the fabulous Level 2 hostess set, Something to Celebrate, which you can get free if you host a qualifying workshop.  I finished the card with a couple of silver brads, a button from the Big Designer Buttons collection, and some linen thread.

The second card uses the same elements, but features the fantastic  Sail Away stamp (8.95).

I really love these monochrome cards, using texture to give interest.  I hope you do too!
