Birthday Card for guys!

Phew! it is pretty difficult to make cards for guys :)

Well. here is my take on this. It actually started out as beige and brown and ended here! hhheehe! :)

P1010010 - Copy (18) 

Dry embossed layer in the middle, hugged by strips of silver.

Stamped the cake – decided on this after a load of other images :)

P1010035 - Copy (11)

Sentiment is computer generated and the Chipboard from wrapped in a piece of string

P1010037 - Copy (11)

Added a little paper and a bit stamping on the inside

And then made another one too :)

P1010038 - Copy (9) 

An entry for Cards for Men - challenge  #6

  6. Jaya: Thanks for your comment...I didn't see these before, very nice! I also like the little fish on the one below...

    Absolutely, use the photos from old magazines, although watch when you glue/seal them as the ink may run, depending on what type of printer you have (I copy them so as to keep the originals). This wasn't my idea, by any means. Wish I could take credit for it but others have gone before me. Have a great day!


Thanks so much for your comments :)
