Masculine Challenge Card – And Many Mower

Here is a card I made for the Late Night Stampers Masculine Challenge last week.  I’m not sure it entirely came out the way it looked in my head.  It is supposed to be a pocket and a belt across.  The only stamping on it is the Happy Father’s Day greeting from And Many Mower in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  But, I did use LOTS of texture!

I started with a base card of Kraft cardstock and added a layer of Very Vanilla.  Then I added a wide stripe of Manchester Designer Paper down the center of the Very Vanilla.  I created a pointed pocket from Kraft cardstock and used my scoring tool to make a diamond pattern with the score marks.  Then I used my piercing tool to pierce stitches around the edges of the pocket and the edges of the Manchester Designer Paper in a zig zag pattern.  I used a Chocolate Chip marker to connect the piercings for stitches.  I used a strip of Always Artichoke cardstock and cut one end to look like a belt end and then added three Pewter Mini brads across the front.  Last, I added a little Very Vanilla tag with Happy Father’s Day from And Many Mower stamp set with a little bit of Chocolate Chip ribbon held with another Pewter Brad.  Oh…I did use my sponge dauber with Chocolate chip ink around all the edges for some added depth.

I’ll probably give this to my Father in law for Father’s Day!


Don’t forget about my VACATION SPECIAL going on NOW!
