Pixie Snippets challenge 212

Somehow I've not managed to post a card on my blog since last Sunday - busy week one way and another.  My offering for the Pixie Snippets challenge this week is a card suitable for a man using up yet another small scrap of the Brusho'd background I produced recently along with some other matching bits and pieces from the scrap boxes.  The stamp is an old faithful, stamped onto black card and gold embossed; background paper was another remnant; the Brusho'd piece was embossed and treated to some gilding wax and finally a greeting added on a banner. Di has made an interesting card this week from an idea she spotted in a recent magazine and very helpfully has given some measurements so do take a look at that one as it is something a bit different which is always handy to come across when seeking inspiration.

Stamp - Tim Holtz
Embossing folder - textures from Crafter's Companion
Dies - banners from Sue Wilson


  1. Love all the elements on this, that stamp is rather different.

  2. Such a great card Val, a handy one to have when you're stuck for a male themed card.
