I chose masculine, embossing and stripes. I stamped the goose image in Versafine Black then used clear embossing powder and heat set it.
On the stripes and on the goose I used the Altenew https://altenew.com/products/ink-blending-tool-large (which was gifted to me) blending tool to adhere some Antique Linen ink to dull down the bright white stripes and the yellowness of the cream paper.
I cut out the image using a SU die and using the same die I cut out a piece from the Old Olive cardstock which I then cut in half and taped to the back of the image.
I taped the stripe paper to the Old Olive cardstock and wrapped twine around the paper 3 times, tied a knot which I covered over with the goose image.
When finished I am quite pleased with this masculine card and thrilled to have another card to add to my pile for an ALS Fundraiser which I was asked to donate some of my cards! It is an honor to have been asked again this year by a nurse at my local hospital where I donate cards for the infusion bay area patients to use.
