Masculine cards can sometimes be a challenge and maybe because I tend to buy lots of stamp sets full of flowers. When I saw the "A Good Man" stamp set I knew it had to be a part of my collection.
The image in this card could be my sweet husband Tom. He carried our kids and now our grandkids around like this. Liam turned 4 last week and he still likes to ride on Grandpa's shoulders.
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit
Today's card was CASED from page 18 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog. When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both. Today I changed everything except the layout of the card. This gives the card an entirely new look.
The catalog is full of great ideas. When I first started stamping I copied cards exactly like they were. I wasn't very creative but CASEing helped me to become more creative and confident to stamp my own cards. Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
