Here's the first card, a masculine card using some products from the new CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book with a few tiny scraps from my Urban paper packet from last year.
I used Sapphire Ink on Sapphire Cardstock using my Ink Blot stamp set on the strip of cardstock on the left. I embossed the Whisper Cardstock (and sponged the edges) with the new Simple Chevron embossing folder, the star is from our new Thin-Cuts Stars Die. The Saffron pieces are also sponged with Saffron Ink
The patterned pieces are all leftover from the CTMH Urban pack - I stretched that pack so far that all I have left right now are some pieces that are about an inch or so wide and the zip-strips that I cut off the top of the 12x12 sheets.
I also used my Mini Stapler and add some staples to the edge of the Whisper Twine and the Pennants at the top. I really love using the mini-staples when doing masculine cards or layouts.
It was hard to get a good photo, but the sparkle that you see on the star die cut is from the new Clear Shimmer Brush, it leaves just a little shine and I love that I didn't have to pull out the glue and glitter.
