Masculine Cards - By the Tide Faux Polished Stone

By the Tide is a wonderful versatile set including coral, shell, seahorse, fish and more. Combined with hand made backgrounds (which can also be used in scrapbooking) this set can be used simply and stunningly.  Male cards are thought to be difficult to make, but the below examples show how easy it is - By the Tide Wood Mount 129117 / Clear Mount 129120

Betty made this beautiful card using the Faux Polished Stone Technique. Click HERE to learn how to do this marvellous technique.
This looks like a fossil dug up from the depth, I just love this card and the finish Betty achieved.

My card is not nearly as spectacular, but I embossed the Cherry Cobbler mat with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder 119976 and on my Faux Polished Stone background I embossed in Early expresso, Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango for the majestic sea horses.
Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler matting.
 A closer view of the embossing, ribbon button and of course the greeting...
I am really loving the Bitty Banner dies 129267 and Itty Bitty Banners stamp set WM132022/CM126257.
More ideas using this gorgeous set are in my next post so be sure to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by
Stay warm and happy crafting.
