SCS Featured Stamper Challenge - Masculine Card

This card is for this week's SplitCoastStampers Featured Stamper challenge. The Featured Stamper this week is Nicole, and here is the card I chose to case from her wonderful gallery.

I stamped the image (by Impression Obsession) with Soft Suede on shimmery ivory paper, and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment (from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics) is done the same way. I matted it with Soft Suede and added the black decorative border, punched with an EK Success fleur-de-lis punch. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder which I had brayered with Soft Suede. It's matted on Basic Black. The ribbon is from Basic Gray. The card base is Very Vanilla.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Oh this is gorgeous, I do love the stamp. Thank you for the idea to bray a cuttlebug folder. Forgot to let you know but I've ordered those new Christmas embossing folders.

LOVE LOVE your card.
