LIM week 232 one layer masculine

The challenge this week on Less is More is for a one layer card which is masculine. I decided to use a gloss card blank and mask off leaving just a square in the centre of the card. I then took a stencil and dabbed vaseline through it to form a resist against the ink I then applied all over the square. I ran the whole thing through a Crafters companion embossing folder - the most masculine one I could find! and finally using a Clearly besotted "birthday" die cut out from the card, inking through to leave inside the word birthday.

Elegant, fun and fabulous Linby, love the cut-out word die - that's one clever one layer idea and adds such dimension too.
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

How creative! I've never heard of vaseline as a resist...very clever! Great card!

This is just great, like how you sponged the inside through the die cut sentiment, to co-ordinate

Great technique and I love the colours. What a fun way to continue the design onto the inside of your card.
Thanks for sharing with us.

A WONDERFUL design and card, lovely colours too.

Thanks for the comments :) The embossing folder I used is Cuttlebug Happy Birthday. It's only an A6 size though. 4" x 5.25"

Also had a catch up on your cards, you are so clever and your cards are really beautiful. Really sorry I haven't the time to comment on each one.
