Mask-u-line Floral Card Technique

 Hello! I have always thought that there is no reason why flowers should not be masculine.  Every guy I know likes flowers.  Anyhow, it is corny but I decided to use a flower and masking and make it sortof a masculine card. 

I used this HUGE Dahlia stamp.  It is such a great stamp, I use this one a lot.  

1) I used a grid to mask a straight section of my card front.  I used Mint Tape, and I didn’t even measure how wide it is.  

2) Stamp right over the tape so that the flower shows up on either side.

3) Using both the tape and a ruler, use a black marker or pen to draw a border on the flower.  I didn’t extend beyond the stamped image, but depending on what length of sentiment you will use, you totally could extend it, even to the edge of the card. 

4) Remove the tape and then stamp your sentiment in between the lines.  

I finished the card by coloring just little parts of the flower with a light grey and a green marker. I then matted the card front with grey cardstock and voila, a clean and simple Thank You card, suitable for any recipient.  Even a guy.

This card uses Quarter Sheet Dahlia stamp set and also the sentiment comes from Fall Rubber Stamp set by Pam Bray Designs.

This is such a neat CS card! I love that you masked off the middle of the flower for the word. Yes, men like flowers too. This card is just right for a man.
