It is hard to design a card for a guy when you do want to use a flower. However, the Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #50 for a card with a Good Well Wish made it the perfect time to give it a try. I hope you like what I came up with.
One of the styles I really like is grunge. This grungy background was created with Stampin’ Up! inks in Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I used some retired sets which are my favs: Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Textures. There are similar stamps in the current catalog, but I just love these.
These particular rose and leaves are in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and the stamp set is called Healing Hugs. This is a Distinktive stamp which to me looks more photographic. I enhanced the rose with the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil, and the leaves with the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to make them even more realistic.
