Such a Gent

Hello and Welcome

Today I'm sharing a 'floating' card.  I used pieces of Stampin Up papers onto a 6" square kraft card.

The centre section on the front is cut out and the top and bottom held together with a topper.

I used a Woodware stamp set which included all three sentiments.

I rubbed Distress ink round the edge of the cut paper and the image panel.

It really was a very quick card to make.

I would like to enter my card into the September Challenge of Stamping Sensations - One for the Boys

I DO like this one! The floater cards are so interesting with the design, and the papers you've selected for this one, make it so striking. The bold design of the red & white shows up splendidly with the more muted shade of the top pieces. Love the way you've 'held' these together with the wonderful masculine topper. Perfect masculine card, and I love the sentiment too! (I need some of those)
