After my recent failure to have any back up stocks of the dreaded "man card" and having to resort to the card maker's shame of buying a card for the occassion, I have tried to make an effort to boost my card stocks. Okay, so I know that one card will not make a huge difference but at least I won't go into mild panic when the next male birthday is approaching.
So, for my man-card I have gone with the fairly universally liked theme of beer! I can't tell you a man who doesn't like beer - I guess there's one or two around, but they are quite rare! I have dug out one of my neglected digis - probably my favourite man-themed digis - Jim with Beer , from Digi Stamp Boutique.
The image has been coloured with pro markers and I've used papers from a Sizzix Earth Tones pad. I printed the sentiment on my PC and added a few dots around it, together with the image, a bit more manly than faux stitching, I thought. Three "man friendly" buttons stitched on and, hey presto, card finished!
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Digi Stamp Boutique - Use one of their images
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Fab 'n' Funky - Use a digi
Penny's Challenge - Anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything goes
Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter my blog candy draw!
