SparkleN Sprinkle has just released a new stamp set called Wild Cats and it is fantastic for making masculine cards. With Father’s Day around the corner, along with my husband’s birthday, I could hardly wait to get my hands on this set.
I stamped the Snow Leopard in black and colored with alcohol markers. I cut it out with a Spellbinders’ label die and layered it on a Spellbinders’ Circle die cut covered with Log Cabin embossing powder. I added this, along with embossed rectangles, to two distressed layers on a cream card base. For embellishment I used parts of a Victorian Romance Flourish die, cut out of sticker paper and covered with Meadow Spark Glitter. Then I fussy cut three Dark Fern images, heat embossed with Moss embossing powder. I combined these in the upper corner surrounding the sentiment, which is part of the Courage Set. It can be purchased separately or as part of this Wild Cats set.
I was really excited to use some new jewels I just purchased at a local craft store. It was hard to photograph how neat these look. They have a leopard print design in them so they go great with this card.
