Red, white and blue masculine card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Red, white and/or blue".

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, one of America's biggest holidays. Everyone who celebrates it, I wish you an amazing day! For this card I've used all 3 colors. I started with Distress Oxide Fired Brick and Distress Ink Barn Door. I've applied multiple layers and using both Oxide and the Regular Distress so I get more contrast. Then I did the same with Distress Oxide Faded Jeans and the Regular Distress Ink Faded Jeans.

With the Read to Me stamp and Stars stencil I've created more depth in the background. Along with Dylusions Spray Black Marble I added some splatters. The Dapper stamp set I've used as my focal point. Such a fabulous stamp, don't you think? I finished it with the Magnolia Jane stamp set to create a sentiment.


For the embellishments, of course, I've used the Droplets, I can hardly do without those anymore. And I've used a new tool, the Tag Press. With Distress Oxide Faded Jeans and the star of the Magnolia Jane stamp set, I've made a tag press ring as fun piece. Unfortunately, I didn't film the part I've made the little Dimensional Star. Is a fiddly work to fold and glued it together, but it looks fantastic all done, and adds lots of dimension and interest to the card.
