Man MOJO with Adventure Awaits

I'm taking a little break from the Something Borrowed series to go masculine for Mojo Monday - Man MOJO, I guess you could say! I was packaging my Products Shares to go out today and I was sorting sheets of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. I was admiring all the textures and patterns, so I just had to use it again. This time I decided to do a woodsy theme and use the Adventure Awaits Stamp set.  The MOJO Monday sketch has an oval shape for the main image so I picked the sentiment above from the 6 amazing ones in the set, because it has an oval shape to it and because it really fits the woodsman theme here.

This time I chose not to go tall and skinny because of the dimensions of the sentiment, so I just used the standard card size of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

  • All the paper you see here, with the exceptions of the Mossy Meadow card base, the Early Espresso backing and the vellum overlay, are from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. If you haven't ordered this yet, you've got to do it. I just think it brings a whole new aspect to card making with the photographic images.  I love what you can do with it!
  • I was originally going to emboss the sentiment from Adventure Awaits stamp set right on the forest panel from Adventure Bound, but I was unsure about how it would show up on the varying light and dark areas. So I opted to emboss it in White Stampin' Emboss Powder on the White vellum cardstock and use it as an overlay.
  • The ovals were cut using the Ovals Collection Framelit dies and the Big Shot.  The vellum overlay was die cut with one framelit, while the forest scene was cut using the oval framelit that was one bigger.
  • The Essentials Wooden Element was just the perfect embellishment for this card and I used Early Espresso Baker's Twine instead of the long flag in the challenge sketch.
This was a fun card to design and definitely appropriate for any occasion for the men in your life. Hope you enjoyed it!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! All the woodsy textures work so well together! And layering the vellum oval was a great way to get the sentiment on there without the trees interfering. Great idea!
