Allsorts 4 Men

Hello everyone, hope you are ready for the weekend and hopefully with time for crafting and to set you on your way we have a new challenge at Allsorts which is hosted this week by Kirsten who would would like to see "Cards 4 Men".

My card is quite a quick and simple one using Penny Black 2827K Song Bird, stamped with versafine back and embossed with detail clear onto linen cardstock which was cut on Cricut Storybook. I added a little watercolour to the image and added a gem for the eye. The branch is cut with a Sizzix die through the Big Shot and the sentiment is from an unmounted sentiment set from Rubber Tapestry. I 'think' the DP is My Minds Eye, but it was a scrap in my stash and the name already gone.

  1. I love it Brenda, and stamping onto that paper has added to the lovely effect. Would you believe I just posted 3 mens cards yesterday lol. Back to the drawing board! I just received an order from Sir Stampalot which I only ordered yesterday...how did they do that, magical fairies working for them!!! Unbelievable service. Hugs

  32. I always find it difficult to make cards for men and usually resort to 'any car' or 'sport' lol

    This card looks excellent and contains neither...
