Another Masculine Card - with Deconstructed Sketch #191
The striped strip across the top is actually just kraft cardstock with the design stamped in white pigment ink! The baker's twine was purchased at an estate sale by my neighbor - and I got a TON of it for just a few dollars. The banners and circle mat are cut from a pack of DCWV glitter paper I got at a steal at JoAnns a couple of years ago. No reason not to add a little glitz to a guy card! The greeting is stamped with the same white pigment ink. I even embossed the black paper at the bottom so that it matched the stripe above. Luckily, my strip wasn't too wide as I had to angle it in the 5X7 embossing folder.
You might notice that there seems to be a recurring thought with this card - I'm trying to use up my stash! I love my papers, and tend to hoard them instead of using them. After cleaning my craft room, I've decided that I bought this stuff for a reason, so I have to start using it.
Here's a list of what else I used on this card:

In the Background (striped strip) CTMH #D1540
