Heroic Man-Card

Well it's Monday again...where did the weekend go?  I hope you enjoyed yours and had some time to stamp :)  Today I have a Man-card for you...perfect for the superman in your life...that I made with this week's challenge over at The Friday Mash-up in mind.  Here is the challenge:

And here is my project:

Birthday card featuring the Calling All Heroes photopolymer stamp set.
I knew I had a success on my hands when my DH came into my craft room, went right to this card and said "This is cool!  I really like this one."  That doesn't happen very often...actually almost never.  Anyhow, this one has the Manly "stamp" of approval (pardon the pun!).  The colours I used were Real Red, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise and Gumball Green, in addition to Basic Black, of course.

To get the 3D effect on the cityscape, I first stamped the buildings directly on the Gumball Green background using Basic Black ink.  Then, on a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped it again using Versamark and heat embossed it in black.  I fussy-cut it out and then adhered it to the original image with dimensionals, slightly off-setting it to allow the  other image to show behind it.

On the inside of the card I stamped the word "Super" using the letters from the Calling All Heroes set and "Hope it's" from the Endless Birthday Wishes set.

I love this fun many possibilities...and not only for Man-cards...I know plenty of Superwomen who would love this set!  This one is available only while supplies last, so be sure to order before it's too late!
