Happy Monday to U! Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time! Sometimes I have trouble creating masculine cards, so I'm always happy when I'm on the schedule for Manly Monday. It forces me to do it :)
Now I have to admit that I had this great card planned in my head...and then I started to create it...then the crickets started chirping. I put it all together and was NOT happy with it...boring and flat.
I just stared at it I knew it needed texture but embossing folders were out of the question since I had it all glued together. You just can't start adding bows, buttons, and sequins to a "man" card :)
Then it hit me...GLOSSY ACCENTS! It's amazing how little dots of glossy accents brought this card to life.
If you look closely you can see where I added the slash embossing between the "u" and the footballs. I added a "U" die to complete the "celebrate U" sentiment.
