Masculine VLV Sketch

Let's face it, masculine cards can be a bugger to create. But when I saw Amber's VLV sketch for this week, I immediately thought "guy card" design. I made this card for a guy who's going through a rough time right now, and thought the "Hunt and Gather" dp by Kaisercraft, combined with some Karen Foster sticky back cork board would work beautifully with the Verve Love Notes heart and "Blue Skies" sentiment from the Verve set Blue Skies. Most guys don't go for all the frou-frou, so I just added a metal brad, and woila...easy, and perfect for a guy.

Be sure to check out this week's VLV sketch. We'd love to have you participate too. It's really easy, and best of all, you can win some Verve Stamps!!

Heads up too....Verve is releasing some wonderful new sets on the 13th of this month, so don't forget to stop by for some previews. I've been working on them already, and these stamps are a dream to work with.

Happy Stamping ya'll!!

Fabulous masculine card, Tosh! The brad is the perfect touch and the cork is too fun :) I'm sure he will greatly appreciate your thinking of him. Yeah for the sketches being back too - Friday just wasn't the same without them.
