Masculine--Grungy-Embossed Variety

 
 
I think grungy is the word to describe this card. I debated whether or not to upload this card but I do like diversity. It really does look better in person. :-)
 
Yesterday, I told you my next card would be different and it really is, don't you think? I have a masculine card to show you today and it uses five different embossing folders. It's a little ragged due
to distressing with scissors on my chocolate chip cardstock behind each square. The squares were punched with an EK Success 1 1/4" punch.
 
I'm loving the new Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub I bought at my Jo Ann Stores. I used Gold, Silver, Copper, and Haematite. You should rub it on with a cloth (in my case, I used my finger), rub and buff. It will last forever as it hardly used any to cover.
 
The embossing folders I used were: Cuttlebug/Houndstooth, Distressed Stripes, Tartan, and Herringbone. I also used a Tim Holtz Alteration Texture Fades folder/Bricked.
 
Tied on a bit of twine and that finished it.
 
This card was in honor of the newly crowned Queen on SCS. It is Pat aka imastamper and I cased this adorable card. I don't know what to say but that I got off track somewhere. LOL

Das sind wunderschöne geprägte und farbenfrohe Quadrate. Die Idee, eine Herrenkarte so zu gestalten finde ich sehr wunderschön Benzi.

Meine Hexenkarte ist auch eine Herrenkarte. Mein Schwager bekommt sie.
Ich frage die Männer öfter, welche Karten ihnen gefallen. Sie sagen, das sie gerne fröhliche Karten mögen.

Herzliche Grüße, Carmen

Quite different from your usual style, but oh, so very effective. Liked all the different EF's you used, with the colors, and backed on the chocolate squares to tile them together. Really nice card. The gold looked lovely on your tile squares. TFS & Hugs
