|Masculine Autumn Birthday Card|
I currently have a project on the Gel Press® blog. It is a Thanksgiving card featuring a number of techniques using the Gel Press® plate. You can find the full instructions here.
I wanted to share the second version of this card here on my blog. Finding the right cards for men can sometimes be tricky. The techniques used on this card can easily work for creating a wide assortment of background papers with a masculine feel. Add some stamped details highlighting what the recipient likes to do to customize your card. In this case, it’s for someone who is an avid deer hunter, and as it is the season for this popular sport, it was a perfect time for the selected colors. If your hunter prefers other game, simply change your stamped image for a bear, duck, etc. Change up your paint colors and you can whip up similar cards for fishermen, etc. The techniques used are quick and easy for even beginners to achieve.
Materials used for this version of the project are as follows:
Gel Press® 6” x 6” plate
DecoArt® Americana Decor™ Chalky Finish Paints - Restore, Cameo, Inheritence, Rustic, Timeless
Large unleafed tree rubber stamp
Deer rubber stamp
