CAS-ual Friday CFC9 "Krafts-Men"



Todays card is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC9 titled "Krafts-Men".   I love kraft cardstock.  Love it.  This challenge was something I knew I would enjoy and it was just great timing that I need a birthday card for my 25 year old nephew this weekend.  I used Birthday Words Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card stamp in Versamark for the background.  It is subtle, but adds a nice touch for a masculine card.  I cut a Nestie circle and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder and adhered it to my cardbase.  For the focal point, I used a trio of  labels from My Favorite Things stamped with the Woodgrain Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card and Screen Cover-a-Card stamps.  The sentiment and star are from PTI Star Prints and the star rhinestones were colored with copics to match the navy ink.  Lately, no card of mine goes without some twine, especially masculine cards, so there is a bit of Enchanted Evening twine wrapped around the entire cardbase.  Thanks for taking a look at my "Krafts-men" birthday card.

Cathy........This is just AWESOME!!! I could swear that your focal point was another company's dies released last month.....If not, they are an exact duplicate and one of my very favorites!!! What you did with the woodgrain and screen IO CAC stamps is nothing short of wonderful! Like always, you amaze me with all of your layering and embossing. Just perfect!
