For A Man

I think many of us find making cards for men more difficult than making cards for women. I know that if I am making a card for a challenge I usually make cards for women. I decided that I need ro have a few cards for men in my card box just in case I am asked for one.

For this one my starting point was the Mojo Monday sketch.


I used a free digi download from Create With TLC which although it doesn’t show well in the photo I cut out a second copy of the car and layered it up. I stuck to a monochrome scheme and used just grey copics. The patterned paper is from my stash, the circles are cut with Nestabilities, the greeting is rub-on alphas and there are three red brads for a little splash of colour – I’ve kept this one nice and simple.

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Mojo Monday – sketch

Desert Island Crafters – Use 3

My Time to Craft – Circles

Digital Tuesday – diecut and digital element

Tiddly Inks – monochromatic

Karber Weekly – Digi and Birthday

Challenge up your life– Monochromatic

Crafty Katz - one for the boys/men

So gorgeous. I'm really excited to see that TLC image. I downloaded it when Paulette posted it, but I haven't had the guts to try it out... Thanks for the inspiration! Also, I love how you used that backing paper. Again, gorgeous!
