Today’s Bloggers Challenge was to make a Man Card. I must say that it is getting easier for me to make masculine cards…mainly because Stampin’ Up! has come up with some really nice sets and Designer Paper! This set, And Many Mower is in the Occasions Mini Catalog and will be going away at the end of June! So make sure you order it now!
It happens to be my son’s birthday next week, so I need to get a card and gift card in the mail to him tomorrow. I’ve also been cleaning off my work tables and found the 3Rs Checklist element from And Many Mower in my starts pile. I had a few extras left from when I made this CARD for my Control Freaks swaps. I decided to use it to start Adam’s card! I did add the Summer Sun marker to some of the checks in the frame, just so it tied in with my color scheme.
I used Baja Breeze for the base of the card, then layered on the Sahara Sand Argyle pattern from Manchester Designer Paper. I added a couple 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 circles in the background punched from Summer Sun, Baja Breeze and Really Rust. The Baja Breeze Striped Ribbon I wrapped thru the Jumbo Pewter Eyelet and tied with Linen Thread. I stamped the beer mug from Cheers to You and cut it out, then placed it over the Baja Breeze circle. For the beer foam, I used some Liquid Applique (retired) and puffed it up! I think he’ll like it…well, especially what is IN it! lol!
I hope you have a great weekend! I need to finish up getting Father’s Day gifts and get ready for the cookout on Sunday. We celebrate all the family June birthdays, Anniversaries, Father’s Day, and Graduations all in ONE day in June.
