Mens Card

A big thank you to Kathy for the inspiration behind this card (I did make another similar one but forgot to photograph it before sending - doh) you can see Kathy's card here.
It seemed strange - no flowers, no ribbons, no purples !!

Edited to add materials used
Leaf stamp - All Night Media 151G
Happy Birthday Stamp - Penny Black
Embossed panel - Sizzix/Ellison texture plate
Inks - whispers strokes

  7. I agree on how challengiing it is to do "guy" cards. I also sent my son's card (well it was Dec.!) out without remembering to photograph it!
