The Light Bulb - A Man Card

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I would also like to welcome my new followers!!  Thank you so much for joining me on this crafty journey!  I hope I can give you a little inspiration on the way!!

So,  I'm here to share another of the man cards I created a while back.  This one was for a close friend and, I'm happy to say, he loved it!!

For this card, I used a combination of  old and new Kaisercraft papers along with a few strips from different collections.

I randomly swiped some gesso over the base layer and then used a stencil and texture paste for a bit of interest.
Added the paper strips and then topped it with torn, corrugated cardboard.
The film reel was fussy cut from a sheet of Kaisercraft paper and the chipboard fish net chippie is by Scrapmatts.
The fabulous vintage image is a graphic journal card by Megs Garden.
I need to tell you that I was lucky enough to receive the digital option of two sets of these great Journal Cards as a freebie.   I think they are fabulous and, if you wish to take a look at these wonderful cards for yourself, HERE is the link.  I should also tell you that, if you did decide to purchase some of these for yourself, I will not receive any kind of kickback from your purchase.

For the final piece of interest, I added this awesome lightbulb paper clip!  Isn't it great??  Purchased this at our local Office Works .. they have a number of different shapes to choose from.
And, there you go!!!
Another one bites the dust!!  LOL!!

So, that is another masculine card completed and posted for the year!  Got a few more to go yet but they are for another day!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.  I also wish to thank those of you who left me such wonderful comments on my last post.  You warm my heart with your lovely words.

Have a wonderful day my friends!!
Take care and God Bless.

  7. Marg, it's one lucky guy who receives this card! You make layering scraps of paper look so effortless, yet it has tremendous artistic appeal over that textured background. The film reel is such a wonderful element that makes this so special and love the light bulb paper clip. Just had my eyes on these at Hobby Lobby the other day--or something very similar. Love your creativity! Big hugs!
