Playing Cards with Michele and Friends


I'm playing cards with Michele Ferguson again, but this time it's even better! We're playing with more friends all together, and we're CASEing Michele! Jenni came up with the idea of CASEing Michele's two colour split image card, but adding a twist with a masculine theme. Talk about a CHALLENGE!

Those of us playing are:
Me :-)

It took me forever, and I've only just finished my card at the very last minute, but I did make a card that met the theme - two tone masculine split image.
I used Mama Elephant Party Kit. The sentiment is wPlus9. I embossed in white and silver on PTI soft stone and smokey shadow card. The method I used was to set out my stamps as I wanted them on my block, then stamp and emboss the base, then I lay the panel over the top of the base where I wanted it to end up, and stamped it in the correct position, then embossed that. Not a very elegant way to do it, but I was in a rush, and it worked! Yay!

Michele's inspiration card is this beauty:

I have a secret to tell you. There is a reason I made this card at the last minute. I knew I was playing with Jenni, Chriss, and Michele, and CASEing Michele's card, but I forgot about the two-tone masculine rules. So I made a completely different card to start with. This one here:
I used Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamps. Oh my goodness, these stamps are beautiful! Embossed in silver on white card and a frame of silver shimmer paper.

Okay, I'm late already, so I'd better post. Thanks for visiting! And be sure to visit the other girls, too!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous,love how you did it!,I have a confession my idea at first had the square in the middle and sentiment and image being split but it was an absolute fail,couldn't get it to on straight! But your 'mistake'has made another gorgeous card!Thanks for playing cards with me x

LOVE these balloons in the masculine Colour theme! An awesome CAS and masculine birthday card! Not an easy feat, but you came up with a brilliant design!
I love the bonus card too :)

I came over from Michele's post I had to see what each of you created. Love your festive celebratory card. The balloon edges just over the edge are fab.

I don't know how many times I've made a challenge card to then find I've missed an important bit of glad I'm not the only one that does this!!! I love both of your designs. Silver embossed on white is so stylish and stunning and a great idea for a masculine card. Must remember this!!
