Watercooler Wednesday

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to another exciting card making
 Challenge!   Our Team Artist for this week's challenge is Gail.   Her challenge is  WWC103 at Watercooler Wednesday.   So check out the Sketch below and the samples created by the Watercooler Artists and be inspired by all the lovely Masculine cards they have made.  

My card is totally Masculine.   I made a gate and then figured out how to make hinges and a gate-latch.   My inspiration came from Pinterest and Rose Packer.   For her card she used "Nailed It' stamp and die cut.  I do not have this Bundle yet, but it is on my Wish List for February.  "Many Thanks Rose,"  for this card inspiration.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Soft Suede
Inks:  Tip Top Taupe, Black, Soft Suede
Stamp Sets:  Hardwood, Stylized Birthday, Dragonfly Dreams
Misc.: Let's Tool Around (Die-namics), Mini Tag Punch, Scalloped Punch, Bunch of Banners, 5/16" & 1/2" Hole punch, Dauber's, Glue Dots, Silver Paper, Bone Folder

A lot of "fussy cutting" for gate latch and hinges.  I even used my bone folder to put a crease in the screw for the hinges.  Used my dobber and added different shades of brown all over the gate panels.

So look over the other samples created by the Watercooler Artists, make your card, and then link your card to WWC103 Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Have fun and Good Luck!
