CAS-ual Fridays # 9

Krafts-men is the theme for CFC#9. Such clever titles! The challenge is to make a clean and simple, masculine card using kraft.

I love both kraft and natural colors. I used the beautiful Hero Arts Leaf Prints set, and stamped each image off on another sheet of paper before stamping on the panel to get a more textured look. I also used a fillable frame die from PTI to frame the sentiment.

I've tried it both with and without a button, and I can't decide which I like best. I'm leaning a little bit toward the card without the button.

Stamps: Hero Arts Leaf Prints, PTI Fillable Frames
Ink: Memento desert sand, Color Box chestnut roan
Paper: PTI kraft and rustic white, dark brown from scrap box
Others: button from stash, PTI die

I love the leaf image in the neutrals and it looks great against the kraft card stock. I like the button but for a male card... well my husband tells me firmly that he doesn't 'get' buttons on a card! Hope you've recovered after your scouts trip!

Beautiful cards, love both but I'm with you I think an lean towards no button, the design stands well on it's own, save the button! LOL gay xxx

Great card! I personally LOVE the button, but I'm "into" embellishments. :)
