OWH is always in need of masculine cards for all occasions. I, like many crafters, have a harder time making such cards than in making girly, frilly cards. As luck would have it, my order from EK Success came today and it contained a masculine border punch! (Remember back in the summer when I kept posting asking for votes for my card? Well, I won 6th place and a $50 gift certificate for their website. I'll be matching that $50 for OWH.)
I got right to work with that border punch. I'd seen someone use it like a filmstrip long ago, and I wanted to do that myself. I'm sorry I can't give credit to the person from whom I got the idea, but I've long since forgotten who posted the card I have in mind.
I colored the set of SU Wonderful Woodcut stamps, punched them with a square punch, and layered them on the film strip. The senitment from Hampton Arts is layered on two punches, and the card has a vellum background overlaying a bold patterned paper from American Crafts.
For those of you who love Tim Holtz and Core'dinations papers, take a minute to enter this contest. You could win a signed stack of the paper from Tim. http://pages.exacttarget.com/coredinationsraf/?eKey=Blue1j4Xmc0Eg4ucdtElF0XSgE
