Hello everyone and welcome! I hope you are having a lovely day.
A very special welcome to all my followers, old and new. Thank you all so much for joining me on my creative journey. I really hope you will find a little inspiration here.
I'm back to share a very special masculine card with you. This one was made for my oldest Grandson who turned 21 last weekend. Have to say, it's a bit of a shock to the system knowing I have a 21 year old grandchild. Where did all those years go?? I must have been having a lot of fun because they certainly flew past with the speed of light. LOL!!
Not sure of the name for this style of card but it is my fave for special occassions. The extra fold adds a bit of interest to the front and it also gives you extra space inside if you wish to add some appropriate quotes, etc.
Found some fabulous metal embellies in my stash .. The word band is from Tim Holtz and the spark plug is Prima but I'm not sure who makes the clocks.
The papers are from Kaisercraft and the green cardstock was added to the front as that is my grandies fave colour. Popped some crackle paste and some script stamping on it to add some texture and interest.
Lined the inside with more of the KC papers and added a little washi tape and some of those quotes I mentioned earlier.
Placing the quotes on the sides leaves plenty of space in the middle for a personal message. The '21' are wooden numbers from my stash which have been painted with acrylic paint.
The quotes were found on the net ..
.. some good advice there me thinks.
.. and there you have it. Another of my 'man' cards done and dusted. This was the most important one this year though and I am happy to say it was well received.
Thank you so much for dropping by and do enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care, stay safe and God Bless.
The best things in life are the people we love,
