In my rubberstamp clubs this month, we made masculine cards, and this is the one we made using The Open Sea rubberstamp set. I initially made the version on the right and then added the second one. I love options, and so I gave my club members the option of the sentiment they wanted to use and the ribbon they wanted to use. Customized options are the bomb!
These masculine cards feature one of our retiring colors:Bashful Blue. We sponged all the layers, except the gray, with Bashful Blue ink. I will miss Bashful Blue! It's a great color for masculine cards, baby cards, and winter cards. I like its crispness. It's also pretty for spring cards. Lots of versatility! Alas, I have to bid it farewell:)
