KWerner Color Inspiration MASCULINE CARD

Hey everyone! Sometimes it is difficult to come up with masculine cards.....but
here I have used the NEW Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! called AUTUMN DAYS! It has some great images and I really like this pine cone one. I stamped the image on an embossed card layer using the embossing plates for the Big Shot and then I stamped the image again three times on scrap paper in basic gray. Next, I cut out the images from the scrap paper three times making the image a bit smaller each time. Then I used dimensionals to layer them over the card image making it all 3D! I even used some ribbon that I frayed as the pine bows. The card is really simple except for these embellishments and the brads. I hope you'll try it, and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
