My stamp inventory is male-challenged. As you can see from previous posts, I like to make girly cards with little girl and lovely lady images... or birds. (I think this stems from living in a house full of males.)
So when it comes to the necessary male card, I have to tone down the frills and bling and use an appropriately masculine image. So, I ask you, can I assume this Paper Smooches worm is male? I think so. I wanted him set against a patterned paper so delicious that it would do a lot of the work for me. This paper from DCWV's Songbird stack is embossed and glittered but still gives me the outdoor look I wanted for this birthday dude. I stamped the greeting directly on the paper and, get this, I used a Stampin' Up oval punch to make a small hole for him to be popping out of. (I used a foam dot to pop him up a little, too.)
During a cleanup of the ol' studio yesterday, I happened on a bag of pom poms. What a happy accident because it was just the pop needed for his hat.
Thanks for dropping in. Now, back to making more Hope You Can Cling To cards. Click on the icon in the sidebar if you like to take a gander at the October daily challenges. Tons of prizes in store and for a wonderful cause, too. *smile*
