Simon Says Stamp Olive Green is a wonderful deep green with just a hint of yellow. Reminds me of the program M*A*S*H with all their Army fatigues! But most of all Olive is a great color for making masculine cards (which are the most difficult.) I found some fun products to go with it and some that compliment nicely.

I’ve shot a video of the walkthrough with a little explanation of my card. Enjoy!

To start my card off, I used a sheet from the Breeze My Mind’s Eye Paper Pad. Then I started building up layers using a strip of Olive card stock stamped with YOU using Olive ink.

I incorporated the Indi Chic Grow washi tape and strips of pattern paper. And finally, I used the Indi Chic Pennant Garland to top off the card design.

This is going to one of the men in my family for sure!
