Simple Stem and Thank You Notecards {Day 2}

Hey, it's me again!
Yesterday I showed you a totally feminine set of notecards using this digital stamp called 'Simple Stem and Thank You' from Designed2Delight. So today I thought I'd show you a set that is slightly masculine!

I was able to change the color of the digital stamp from black to this gorgeous olive color using free online photo editing software. Let me tell you that I tried every color option and cannot wait to make more cards using blue, brown, or red! So fun!

I printed the digi out on watercolor paper 3 times for this set. The edges were distressed with tea dye inks, and then matted onto awesome papers and cardstock. I punched a little hole in each panel, pulled the velvety black ribbon through, and tied a bit of twine to the ends to secure. The black brads were a finishing touch, as I adhered everything to the black cardstock bases.

Again, a clean and simple interior for personal thoughts and sentiments.

I love that this set of cards could be sent to a guy! It is so hard to find or create manly cards! I showed this set to all of my guys, and they thought they were awesome, and would absolutely enjoy being the recipient of one of them! :)

So there you have it!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderfully creative day!

  1. I need to get this image and give a try to changing the color. I always struggle with manly cards, this set is fab! I like how you used two different backgrounds under the white layer inside, too, it just gives it a little extra something. Very nice!
