CASology #269

I'm guesting over at CASology today because of my win with this card.   When the lovely Melissa asked if I wanted to guest of course I said 'yes' although there's always the thought in the back of my mind "What if I can't think of anything for the cue word."  This is the word she sent.

I have a number of grids in various sized, both stencils and stamps.  So it wasn't a matter of what to do but which to use.  I happened to see a technique from Jennifer McGuire (I seem to be using a lot of her techniques lately) that I thought would be perfect for my card.  You can check it out here, but only after you finish reading my post. ;)

I covered a scrap of cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Verdigris embossing powder.  When it was cool, I heat embossed the SSS grid over it with black.  I trimmed it down a little along the grid lines before adding it directly to my card front and popped up a gold embossed sentiment from HA.  I think it makes a great masculine card.

Thanks for dropping by and please check out what the CASology Design Team has for your inspiration.
