Artful Legacy Design Team Card for This Week.
Something for Fathers Day....

Since Fathers Day is right around the corner, I thought I would make a masculine card today. I am a lover of all things flowery and frilly, so cards for men usually scare me. But when I saw this gorgeous stamp "Ship AG 517 M", my fears were gone. Its so detailed, and such a nice large size that my card came together rather quickly.

I stamped it in a chocolate brown ink (Memento) onto cream cardstock and chalked the edges in a creamy brown. It was so nice as is, I decided not to color it. I then paired it with some travel and map themed designer paper (sorry- this is more from my stash) and mounted all this onto some pumpkin colored cardstock. My card measures 6 inches square. I distressed all edges of the paper and used a punch to make it look like the smaller piece was torn from a notebook.

To finish the card and add a little embellishment, I wrapped some thin twine around the smaller piece several times and tied it off in a bow. I am so pleased with the way it came out.
Dont forget to check out what the other DT members have made this week. http://artfullegacyrubberstamps.blogspot.com/.

very nice! I like the punched edge and the twine--good choices for not too girly!
