Another Sweet Thank You

Hello everyone,

Today's card is one for my male thank you stash. I used today's Sweet Sunday Sketch and the Paper Sundaes challenge to use metal. I think it turned out wonderfully.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy. The patterned paper is BasicGrey Oliver. The image is Stampin' Up Branch Out stamped on Very Vanilla. The other Very Vanilla element was textured with Cuttlebug's Leafy Branch folder. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet which is affixed to the card with a metal element of unknown origin.

I just love this card. It is a great male card. The metal piece was part of a box of metal bits that I found at Home Sense eons ago. I never quite figured out how to use them but thanks to a sample card on Paper Sundaes, I got it!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. Gisele, I was checking out the entries over at Paper Sundae, love your card, it would most definitely serve as a male card, love your explanation of the metal piece, I have some of those and just recently figured out how to use them. LOL I would love for you to drop over to my blog and have a look at my entry.
