IBS Kookaburra

Happy Monday! 

Today on the Inspired by Stamping Blog, we are featuring masculine cards using the new release Australian Birds stamp set. I have a fancy-fold card using the Kookaburra image.The images in the Australian Birds stamp set make it easy to create masculine cards!

Take a look at my pop-out swing card:

The Kookaburra image was stamped in dye ink, then colored with pencils and baby oil. I die-cut the image and lightly sponged it. After die-cutting the opening, I embossed the front of the card with a wood grain embossing folder. The same die was used for the matting layer of the stamped image.

Now you can see the pop-out swing part:

I used two sentiments from Teeny Tiny Greetings. This set is full of sentiments that can be used alone or combined, as I did today.

The card is a standard 5½ x 4¼. The card stock for the inside was cut at 5 x 6 and scored at 2 and 4. Adhere the right panel, fold the card closed, then adhere the stamped/matted piece through the front opening.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Australian Birds masculine inspiration Jo is sharing along with me today.

Thanks for stopping by!
