A Good Man ~ Groomsman Cards

Hello and welcome back to my blog!
Today I am MARRIED!
Yesterday's blog post shared some cards that I made for my bridesmaids and today I am sharing the cards that I made for our groomsman.

These I found a tad more difficult as masculine cards are not something that comes all that naturally to me, but I powered through and made something that I am pretty happy with.
I must admit that I love the Buffalo Check background stamp and was happy to use it on this card.
I hope you enjoy this blog post and get some inspiration.

Here are the steps I have used to create these cards:
Step 1: I have cut a standard sized card base that is top folding from Basic Black.
Step 2: I then cut a card layer from Sahara Sand 1/8'' smaller than the card base.
Step 3: I have cut a card layer from Crumb Cake 1/8'' smaller than the Sahara Sand
Step 4: I have then taken my Buffalo Check stamp set and used the Stamparatus to stamp the Crumb Cake layer with this background stamp in Early Espresso ink. I then adhered this to the Sahara Sand layer and then both layers adhered to the Basic Black card base.
Step 5: I have cut a label from Gold Glimmer using the Everyday Label punch. I have then adhered this to the card front as pictured with liquid glue.
Step 6: Taking a scrap of Whisper White card, I have stamped out the compass from the Sailing Home stamp set and used a coordinating sized circle punch to punch this out. Set aside.
Step 7: I have now taken a scrap of Sahara Sand and used the sentiment from the 'A Good Man' stamp set and stamped this with Versamark and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I just used scissors to fussy cut this out. Set aside.
Step 8: I now cut two lengths of Burlap ribbon to just smaller than 4''. I have then laid these over each other and adhered them with plenty of glue dots over the Gold Glimmer label on the card.
Step 9: I have then taken the stamped compass and used some mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere this over the burlap ribbon in the centre of the card.
Step 10: I have adhered the embossed sentiment over the top of the compass with just liquid glue.
Step 11. To embellish I have taken the Sail Away trinkets and used tweezers to dab them in Versamark ink and using tweezers again to cover them with gold embossing powder and heat. Be careful during this stage to not handle the trinkets until cooled down as they will get hot.
I have also done this same with some Basic Rhinestones, applying gold embossing powder and heating,
Step 12: To finish off I have used a Glue Dot to add my wheel to the card as pictured, and added some gold rhinestones scattered on the card.

Here you can see a close up of the finished card.
I am not a natural at making masculine cards. I grew up in a family of girls and I am very much accustomed to flowery things!
I did however enjoy making these and hope that the groomsman will really like them.
