More of my 'Guy' Cards

Hello everyone, lovely to have you here for a visit.  Hope you are having a wonderful day and that your weather is treating you kindly.  Must say, it's been really cold in Adelaide lately ... simply hate getting up in the morning.  Although the days themselves haven't been too bad so, I guess, I can't complain too loudly!  LOL!!

As my post title says I have another 'guy' card to share with you.
At this time of the year we have quite a few of our male family members and friends celebrating their birthdays, so I need to make a lot of 'guy' cards.  I'll be sharing quite a few of these over the next week or so.

Thought I would go blue with this one so I've used some papers from Kaisercraft's Blue Bay 6.5" Paper pad.  Distressed all the edges and added a little doodling around some of the edges.   I wanted to add some crackle too but, unfortunately, I had to toss the little I had left in the bin as somebody (I guess we all know who!!) hadn't tightened the lid properly and it had all dried out.  Bumma!!!

The chipboard is from 2Crafty .. I simply coloured it with a VersaColor stamp pad and then just randomly heat embossed it. 

You can just see some of the embossing on this photo if you look closely.

The word circle is also from 2Crafty and I've treated it the same as the other piece.

Added a few metal cogs and all I've done to those is swiped them with a little gesso.

I had originally left this top layer of paper white because with all the printing on it I felt that it didn't need any more than that but, when the card was finished I changed my mind and added some stenciling and also rubbed a bit of Distress Ink to colour it up a bit.  I do like it better this way.

The inside ..

.. added some swipes of gesso and .. done!!

As I said at the beginning, I will be sharing more masculine cards over the next few weeks so I hope you found some inspiration here and will come back to take another look.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Take care, stay safe and God Bless.
