Spots and Stripes

     Welcome to another project for The Male Room, this fortnight we are looking for a masculine card with spots and stripes on it.
     I have used a clear stamp by Woodware called Huge Happy Birthday and a technique called paper piecing to make a card that is approximately 7x5 inches.
    I have stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with Stampendous Detail Black embossing powder on to white card, then stamped and embossed on to striped paper and spotty paper. Each letter has been cut out from the designer papers and glued on to the white card, alternating spots and stripes. As they are patterned papers (rather than card) it doesn't come out too thick and heavy so it's alright for standard postage, I have matted and layered but it's still quite thin.
     The beauty of this stamp is it can be used for young and old, male and female, all you need do is change the colours, now that's what I call value for money!
     Please come and join us at The Male Room with your creations, we would love to see them.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fashionable Stamping - All About The Men
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes


  1. Love it! A perfectly CAS card - the papers you've used are just super and work perfectly for a guy card. xxx
