Opportunities - A Man Card

Good day lovely visitors and welcome to my blog!  Hope you are having a fabulous day!

A quickie post again to share another of my 'man' cards with you.  You will see quite a lot of these from me as I have more male friends and family than female.  The ones I have done lately are very similar.  I have simply used different papers and a few different elements but they are basically the same design.  Makes life so much easier than trying to come up with something totally different each time.

The papers are old ones from my stash.  I think they are from Kaisercraft.
Created some layers and distressed the edges.  Inked a few of those edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink and wrapped some twine around the papers.
A couple of tags tucked in at the sides ..
.. and a quote label which is definitely from Kaisercraft.

A little bit of washi tape for interest ..
.. and, Voila!!
I was really pleased when I discovered the quote panel in my stash.  I found quite few of them.  I think I was keeping them to use in a Mini Album but, they work very well on my cards I think!

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek.  I really appreciate your visit and any comment you may care to leave.
Have yourselves a wonderful day!!  I hope your weather is being kind.  Ours is really hot at the moment and I am so over it!!  Can't wait for Summer to be finished with!!  Unfortunately, then I will probably start complaining about the cold and wet!!  LOL!!

Take care and God Bless.

  12. AWESOME!! Every time I see one of your masculine cards, I am just so completely impressed and inspired! Once again I have bookmarked this for future reference and fully intend to case this card in the near future! Last time I was at Michael's, I purchased a paper pad collection that has masculine style papers in, because as soon as I saw it, I thought... oh this totally looks like paper that Margaret would use!! So I guess now I have to take the inspiration you have given me and put it to good use! Thank you my friend for always keeping my mojo alive and flowing! sending hugs :)
