I have a lot of men in my life but I guess, what is more important is that there is a lot of life in my men...to quote Mae West. OK,ok, I just want a lot of life in my one man-hahahaha. Well I could keep on going but this is about my card making:) Nyuck, Nyuck. My first card I decided to make a scene, not in any restaurant or outside to embarrass anyone but a nice scene with horses. I stamped the horses and then masked them so I could create the clouds and sun behind. I coloured the background, framed it in border stickers and added some crystals.
The 2nd card is all monotone in browns and I added glitter paper for my bro in law who has pizzazz. I stamped the image and embossed in glitter and then added the sticker border and the "Happy Birthday" sticker too.
the 3rd card-Layer and layer with orange and a shimmery blue. I stamped the image and sponged on different colours for a later afternoon look. I brought out my cuddlebug for the blue paper to create the dots and the border. This is my Whimsy card and I chose Summer, Die Cut (The borders in orange) and sentiment (Happy Birthday)
My last card was given to my hubby and it signifies moi as I was born the year of the Dragon although I puff out more smoke than fire. I stamped the image and coloured in all the detail with tombow markers. I used my punch for the corners and special scissors for the border. I layered it on purple and blue cardstock and added the border and crystal embellishments to finish it off. I have to say this one is my favourite.
So this is to all the manly men who like some colour and sparkle but still will drink milk out of a dirty glass.
