This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA54) is right up my alley. KISS means I get to create a "Keep It Simple Sweetie" card. For the masculine twist, simplicity falls into line perfectly. Here are my secret ingredients to making a masculine card!
Check out what the Pals Paper Arts Design Team drummed up for this week's challenge!
- Did you miss it? The Woodland Walk Designer Series Paper escaped my devouring eye the first time I raced through the new catalog. However, after about my third trip through, the gorgeous "organic" patterns grabbed my attention.
- I tucked some of the Woodland Walk paper in the envelope for a polished finish. Click for my Video Tutorial on Lining Envelopes. Very easy.
- Is there any color that Crumb Cake doesn't look great with? Very earthy with this paper and color palette.
- Layering the sentiment (A Word for You stamp set) over the oval really "punches" things up!
