Here is the card that we made for club this month. It uses the emboss resist technique. I think this card makes a good masculine card.
The emboss Resit technique is really pretty simple. All you do is pick a DSP, rub your embossing buddy over it, ink your stamp with Versa Mark, stamp it, pour clear embossing powder on it, emboss it, then sponge a darker color (here I used Always Artichoke) all over it and you will begin to see your embossed image pop! If you can't see your image very well, just sponge more ink on to it!
The colors in the card are Chocolate Chip, Craft and Always Artichoke. The DSP I used is from the Manchester paper pack. The tree stamp is from Lovely as a Tree. I used the linen thread to tie around the Always Artichoke paper to finish it off.
The other project we did in club this month was the little lanterns with the tea lights in them. I did a tutorial on them a few monthes ago on here. You can find it by clicking on the "Tutorial's" link and then look for the Lanterns.
