Dream - A Man card

Hello everyone and welcome to my  creative space!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Another quick post to share this little card with you.  A masculine card this time.  Have been mainly making feminine ones lately but, as I have lots of male friends and family, I really need to get a few masculine ones done.  This is the first for this year with lots more to come!

The papers are by Prima and Kaisercraft and I distressed all the edges. 
The netting chippie is from Scrapmatts and  I simple left it raw.  Added a strip of washi tape on the side for some extra interest.
The quote panel was mounted on a piece of  mat board and edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Before attaching the panel, I wrapped the card with a piece of leather thong.
Added some metal hardware for extra embellishment ..

.. and that's it!!  All done!!  For all it's simplicity, this card did take me a while to complete!  Mainly because I had no idea where I was going with it.  Then I found the quote panel and, after I mounted and attached it, I realised the card was finished! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek.  I really appreciate your visit.
Have a good day my friends!!
Take care and God Bless.

  11. A deceptively simple looking card, yet so much to unpack when taking a closer look. Love the Scrapmatts chippie, the metal clock and gears and most of all the quote. I'm always inspired when I visit your blog and especially so, when you make stunning bloke's cards, as I have so many of my own to make. Thanks for the inspiration.

I haven't made a masculine card in so long, but I've bookmarked marked this one for casing later on! You always inspire me!

    So as I am writing this comment, I look outside and see that it is snowing like crazy! How excited am I!! I haven't been outside for almost 3 weeks, but I'm thinking I'm heading out there this afternoon and grabbing some more snowy photos, before this wintery season comes to an end! Hope you're having a great week my friend, sending hugs :)
