Received a box from Close To My Heart today, full of new product available in the Annual Inspirations book beginning August 1. Included in the box was the new Woodgrain Embossing Folder and the "Just Us Girls" Challenge blog Trend #249 is to use woodgrain, so that was the inspiration for this card. Hats Off is a new stamp set which is available only as a Hostess Reward item. So if you would like this adorable stamp set, gather some of your friends and invite me over to introduce them to the wonderful stamps and papers from CTMH.
Even though the background paper is from the Yuletide Carol kit and is intended for Christmas, it is a very neutral pattern and is perfect for this truly masculine card. The bowler hat, glasses and mustache are so cute that nothing else was required. Pattern #25 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 was used for the card design.
All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
