I started with a z-fold card, although any type of card will work!
I added coordinating papers to the backside from the kit, inking the edges along the way :-)
Using the Tim Holtz Crocodile stencil from the kit and some molding paste, I added a bit of texture to my card front!
Here's a close- up of the texture. I also did some background stamping using a variety of stamps from Creative Embellishments!
Just adding more accents to my card :)
This is what the card looks like together. The right side will fold in fully, and the cover will be all that shows!
Add Ranger Crackle Accents to various areas (I traced the word "smiles" here).
As you can see, I used more crackle accents atop my chipboard.
Add a number of embellishments to your title piece. I used metal gadgets from the kit, and inked the edges of everything :-)
I cut the border from one of the Kaisercraft papers and added it as a "binding" to the edge of the card!
Voila! A simple, easy, and actually beautiful masculine card great for any occasion :-)
