Friday-Masculine Cards

I just love patterned paper! It is a MUST for scrapbook pages, but also adds a special quality to any card! Today I used Cocoa Cafe Collection paper from Close To My Heart. The card base is Chocolate Chip, and the main image is stamped with Chocolate Chip CRAFT ink on Vanilla cardstock. I used Craft ink because it is a pigment ink and is thicker and wetter than dye ink...perfect for sprinkling on Clear Embossing Powder and heat setting for a perfectly embossed image! I sponged around the main image...gives a soft texture. Matted it onto Chocolate Chip card stock and added 3 Real Red brads! A great card for any man in your life! Stampset is Like It A Latte from the SU Winter Mini.

You are as big a stampin' "ho" as I am - I have SU, CTMH, and TAC stuff too, plus all the miscellaneous stuff I get elsewhere. No product loyalty here...
