Rustic Retreat Faux Metal Etching

I learned the faux metal etching technique from one of my favorites, Jennifer McGuire.  I thought this would be a great way to use the cabin on a card in a class that doesn’t require everyone to share the watercolor pencils or Stampin’ Blends.  I really like the look.

Rustic Retreat Simple Masculine Card

I saw a card with this layout on The Joy of Sets Facebook Group and I thought I would make a card using it.  I can’t link to it but it was made by Mindy Karcher and sent to Sammi Little Offield and had an adorable little fox on it.

I thought I would use some of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Rustic Retreat stamp set.  I think both of them are great for making masculine cards.

Rustic Retreat

I got my Holiday Catalog preorder and I threw some Annual Catalog stamp sets in because I like to pace myself when ordering so my husband doesn’t take my credit card away.  🙂

I really liked the Rustic Retreat stamp set when I first saw it because it is perfect for masculine cards, and what better for a background than plaid!  I make the plaid background using the Buffalo Check stamp with Early Espresso ink, Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, White Chalk Marker, and a t-square.
