For A Man

As my co-workers and friends look through my card supply (I have a lot of cards I've made that are just laying in a box at work), one think I get asked a lot is "do you have anything for a man?"...I tend to do flowers and lace a lot!!  So last night I decided to make some cards for guys.  I think they could work for women too, but really, my intentions were that they would be for guys.  LOL

My first one is one I made using my deer die cut, birthday sentiment die cut, oval and scalloped oval die cuts, some DPs, pearls and twine.  I love how this turned out, you can't really tell from this picture, but there is a pop dot holding the deer to the cream oval, so it looks like it is mounted.

This second card was made using an image from QKR Stampede called 'elephant'.  This one is almost too soft for a guy, looking at it the next day...LOL  But, it would work too.  I used some oval and scalloped oval dies, sentiment die, pearls and a knotted ribbon.

This one was made using a sentiment and an image from a digi set at Create With TLC, but I do not see it in her shop.  I used square and a scalloped square dies, an embossing folder, a bow and a mustache from Knick Knacks/The Paper Shelter.

This last card I made last night I made just for the humor of it.  I scanned a stamped image from a Skipping Stones Designs set, scanned the stamped image, made it bigger for my project, colored it with chalk and then added the sentiment myself using my computer.  I have a few female friends I could see giving this to their guys or even some of their other female friends.

Thanks for looking at my projects from last night!

Great cards, Karen. I love that elephant image. Fantastic! Love the boob quote. In my case, though, I don't think it's accurate. They're too small, lol! Thanks for joining us this week at QKR Stampede! Julie, DT member
