The card base is retired crushed curry card stock. The Basic Black mat was embossed using the Big Shot and the Square Lattice embossing folder. I added a strip of retired welcome neighbor designer series paper that I had distressed around the edges with the distressing tool from the Mat Pack. A piece of designer paper from the Neutrals dsp pack was distressed around the edges and layered on next. The sentiment from the Word Play stamp set was heat embossed with the Heat Tool using VersaMark, the retired Crushed Curry ink pad and clear embossing powder on Whisper White card stock. After distressing the edges, I dragged it along the ink pad to pick up some of the color and popped it up with dimensionals. A strip of retired crushed curry ribbon was added to the Basic Black layer. Four black brads from the Neutrals brads were added along the ribbon. The whole layer was adhered to the card front. I think I accomplished my mission of creating a "guy" card. See you soon.
