I'm a card maker at heart, so I decided to make one for one of the guys in my life. It's hard making a masculine card sometimes, but I thought the corrugated cardstock might work out well.
I started by cutting out 2 of the Stacked Artful Words alterations, one in kraft and one in brown. My thought was to use the brown one a little offset behind the kraft one as a shadow. I ran the kraft one through my crimper, and voila! There's my corrugated cardstock!
Next I pulled out some items that I thought I'd like to use: my Mini Blueprints 4 stamp set, my TCW Mini Chevron Arrows template and some patterned paper.
I sponged the edges of my patterned paper and also around the edges of my corrugated kraft die cut, using a sponge dauber and Brushed Corduroy as well as some Spiced Marigold Distress ink. I stamped the pointing finger image in Brushed Corduroy, and then sponged on some of that and the Spiced Marigold using the template. By chance I laid the corrugated die cut onto a strip of brown cardstock and really like how it looked, so I changed course, ditched the "shadow" idea, and cut a strip of the brown cardstock for my card.
And here's the finished card one more time:
