Manly Card

Good afternoon bloggers,

Well it actually happened. Miss A is away for the weekend and the man-friend is out on an all day excursion. That means I have the house to myself and am able to get some much needed crafting done. I was even able to sleep in...double kudos!!

I wanted to make a card that would fit into a couple of challenges. I plan on listing this project here:

Scrapalicious - Card for a Man
Crazy About CricutMan/Boy theme. Use the word man/boy, or use a man/boy themed cut in your project.
Creative Cutter Room - Father's Day
Birthday Sundaes - Manly Birthday




Details:

  • Standard A2 sized card using scraps from my stash
  • 4 x 5.25 Mat - pattern paper from DCWV Guy Stack
  • Sentiment is also from stack and has been matted on some scrap paper
  • Trophy is cut is from Graphically Speaking and embossed using te Swiss dots folder for some texture
  • I also used some mini brads that I got from Oriental Trading, I think they were the "fall" set


I figured since it doesn't actually say Happy Father's Day or Happy Birthday, it could qualify for both. Thanks for stopping by, I should have another post later in today with another project and some more challenges.

Stay Crafty

  7. I love your card and it is great that it could be used as a Father's Day card or a Birthday card for a father. I love the plaid paper and the cardstock colors you used with it. Looks really nice. I just became a follower and would love for you to stop by and follow me.
