Post 270: Masculine Mixed Media Card

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Masculine Mixed Media Card I made. This was for my DT post for Bob n Betty. You can check out all the details and photo tutorial here. I am slowly sharing projects on my blog as and when I get the time.

It is always difficult for me to make masculine projects so this one was really fun to make because I used some new supplies and was really happy with the result. 

Synopsis of the Process: This is a 6 by 6 top folding card. Basically I created layers and textures with pattern paper, faux leather, die cuts and thread. The inka gold brought out the texture in the faux leather and gave some extra shine to the project. 

List of Supplies:
Bob n Betty's Faux Leather
Bob n Betty Optima Paper Pack
Prima's Heavy White Gesso
White and Black Cardstock 300 gsm
Metal Charms
Wire Design Chipboard
MDF title
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Inkagold Aquamarine
Sizzix Thinlits Gearhead Die- Tim Holtz
Tim Holtz Idealogy- Paper Dolls

Here is a photo of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Love reading your sweet comments.
Stay Blessed.

  2. Wow, Preeti, you certainly were inspired by your new goodies! I love all the amazing layering, textures and die-cuts in this card. The background newspaper, made vintage with all that sponging and distressing, pulls everything together perfectly. Love the neutral tones. Such an amazing creation. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
