These four cards were started with no particular plan in mind. I decided on two smoky slate and two basic grey card bases. I knew I wanted to use some of the gorgeous DSP in the backgrounds and also the fabulous hexagon embossing folder. I you are using that folder, don't forget to lightly mist your piece of card stock before placing it into the folder. It makes quite a difference to the quality of the embossing.
Then I just played around until I was happy with the layouts. I think the finished cards have a decidedly masculine flavour. Hmmm....now I'm wondering how it would look if I were to do a feminine version. That may be next!
