It's time for some Heartfelt Creations Inspiration! Today I have a masculine tag for you!
Boy do I have a hard time making masculine projects! I have to restrain myself from adding bows and flowers and it always looks too plain. This one didn't come out too bad. I do love the Clear Bark embossing powder on the light blue designer paper along with the dark brown card stock and ribbon.
Here's a little close up of the elements for you.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to check out all the beautiful creations by the designers this week! You can also see a new video from Emma Lou with a fun technique to show you.
Check back tomorrow for my second project I made for HC this week!
