Today I have a Masculine card that is really quick . It pairs Wildlife Wonder with the New Horizons DSP.  The paper is really the star of the show!

Paper and Ribbon

As I said at the beginning, this New Horizons Designer Series Paper is obviously the star of the show here.  The colors and the look of a mist or fog in the air is amazing.  It makes me think I could be there.  Except I would be long gone since the bear is front and center!!

Pulling the colors from the DSP was an easy choice for the card layers.  Evening Evergreen and Smoky Slate are the card base and layer.   And I used the Evening Evergreen for the back layer of the sentiment.  Paired with the sentiment are two strips of ribbon. One is Soft Succulent and the other Evening Evergreen.  They are simply to ground the sentiment.  I also added one of the gray Classic Matte Dots for the sentiment.

Stamps and Dies

Since the DSP is so amazing, I did not want to cover much of it up.  From the Wildlife Wonder stamp set I chose to use the bear, along with the great sentiment.  Since masculine cards can be a bit of challenge sometimes, this is a quick and easy one.  For the bear, I stamped him on the DSP and then again on scrap paper.  I purposely had only the front half on the paper.  He is too large and would have covered too much space.

After fussy cutting the extra bear, I layered it directly on top of the DSP bear.  This gives the little extra hairs showing that are difficult to cut around.  Once I had adhered the bear layer, I took my Paper Snips and trimmed off the extra of his body flush with the DSP.  The sentiment is stamped and cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  A quick and simple sentiment layer to finish the card.
