Yesterday I promised you a more masculine version of the Six-Sided Sampler card I posted so here it is!! Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay are the star colors today!
The layout is the same, just a change in color scheme and a few details. I spattered the Honeycomb embossed background with my AquaPainter and Early Espresso Ink, and lightly spattered the Very Vanilla background for a more rustic look.
Instead of little punched flower embellishments, today we have punched stars. I'm so glad the Merry Minis Punch Pack carried over from the 2012 Holiday Catalog so we have this little Star Punch!! (To see what other holiday products were carried over and are currently available, click on the "Holiday Carryover" tab at the top of the page. If you are reading this via email, you can click HERE to come to the blog page to see the carryovers.)
In place of the flower-patterned hexagon, I opted for the "woven" image. The Crumb Cake background layer was double-wrapped with Early Espresso and Calypso Coral Bakers Twine which also ties down the button over the birthday greeting banner.
It was fun to challenge myself to make both a masculine and feminine version of the same layout! Have you done this also? Did you find it easy?
