Do you have trouble coming up with ideas for making masculine cards? Understandably, I do, too! Recently, I discovered the Evergreen Elegance stamp set. Now, no one can deny this stamp set doesn’t make beautiful holiday cards. Well guess what? It is ideal for making quick and easy masculine cards using Evergreen Elegance. It doesn’t matter the type of card: birthday, retirement, thinking of you or get well card, either way, it will be lovely!
The possibilities are limitless! The cards above have a completely different look. The top card uses Soft Succulent as the base which is stamped with various size evergreens using a “stamping off” method. This gives the illusion of a forest in the background. The bottom card is in Evening Evergreen and the front is embossed using the Timber embossing folder. The variation in the tree color results from first covering the stamp with Soft Succulent followed by daubing the branch tips with Evening Evergreen.
