clear, metallic & masculine

there are a couple birthdays coming up on my calendar, including some of the special guys in my life. i know they can appreciate my flowery cards but i thought it might be nice to create something a little more masculine. here's what i came up with:

on a 2-1/2 square of woodgrain cardstock, i applied masking paper to half and then inked with hickory smoke ink.

to the corner i applied a triangle piece of be creative tape. 
after removing the tape liner, i applied copper embossing powder and heated.
for the inside, i cut 2 more 2-1/2 squares of woodgrain cardstock and 1 solar white square. on the solar white square, i stamped my sentiment and did a inky copper watercolor wash over the middle.
i adhered my squares in matching positions on an acetate card. and i finished with a few copper alcohol ink splatters.

have a great day!
