Masculine Alphabet Press Embossed

December Card Class (1 of 5)

Looking for a masculine card in your stash.  This fits the bill perfectly.  I pulled the color Island Indigo from the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (DSP) strip.  You can pull in any color from the DSP and change it up.  This is what I did along with adding a framing layer to the embossed face and to the DSP strip when I found Wendi Waldman’s inspiration.  Even with a masculine card I like to give it a bit of shine.  I snuck it in by embossing the sentiment with Early Espresso embossing powder.  Yay!  I added more texture by sanding the embossed letters/numbers, it gave a faux suede look.
