Embellish Masculine Challenge



Masculine card! Thats always a challenge for me. I have a tween son and making a card for him is just so difficult. I start to make a card for him and end up making a baby boy card. Well, he is my baby but.... lol! Hard for a mom to accept her baby is all growing up to be a teen now :)  
Anyway,my son plays guitar and I searched and bought a couple " boy playing guitar"stamps. And when I saw Embellish's Masculine challenge, I jumped  at  the opportunity and actually made a card for my tween son. Here is my card.


I have used stamps from Inkadinkado, Papertrey Ink and Stampin' Up!, cardstock from Stampin' Up!, Martha Stewart's border punch, PTI's music impression plate, Edge distressor, Tim Holtz's Frayed Burlap distress ink and linen thread from SU. I have embossed the main image and stamped the rest of the image with Basic Gray ink from SU. The camera charm is from my stash.
Truly masculine! don't you think? I like how it turned up:)
Here is a close up!

Thanks for stopping by!
This is my second post for today. Go to "Home" and scroll down for more :)

Luv!

Definitely masculine and totally right for a tween. I really like that 'boy with guitar' stamp. I have a teen son who plays guitar too and I know what you mean about making stuff for them- it is hard.

This is absolutely amazing!! Did your son love it? The great thing about giving this to your son is one day you can scrapbook a page about him and use this card on it!! Thank you so much for playing along in the Embellish Challenge.
