Less is More - Masculine Card

OK so how did I come to make this card?  It started from the thought "I need some more cards for men" and I thought about what challenges are out there.  The Less is More challenge was single layer cards, few embellishments so great for those masculine cards.  The challenge is to use Films as your inspiration.  Well I thought about Lion King (that has been done already) then I thought about my stamps.  I searched through film lists and I came up with the thriller North by Northwest because of the scene with the crop spraying plane.  I knew I had no plane like that so I used this sea plane from Katzelkraft.  I searched long and hard for a compass stamp and I am sure I have one but had to improvise on that too!

After my long ramble here is the card
Thanks for looking.


  1. Love how this looks.....great background. One of my fave movies.

  2. I loved hearing how you got to the finished product. Sometimes my mind rambles through the ideas and I enjoy seeing how other people create. I need a vintage airplane stamp as well! Drats! TFS!

  3. This looks terrific, that sky looks gorgeous!
    Thanks so much
