Sorry for the absence from the blog, I have been on holiday. My hubbie and I went to Charnmouth for a week. I have some lovely photo's. I will show them later.
Anyway to today's post.
A lot of us have trouble with cards for our men folk, myself included. So I have set about making cards just for men. I always find them so difficult to make.
This is the first card I made. A card for the rugby player in your life.
I cut the rugby ball with oval nestablities and embossed it with the cuttlebug mosaic embossing folder. I then wiped over it with clear versamark pad. I then coverd that with clear embossing powder and set with a heat gun. to give it that leather look.
A simple looking card and simple to make.
This next card again for the rugby player in your life. Was inspired by a card I saw on a blog somewhere ( I can't remember which one ). The card I saw was a basket ball .
for this card I embossed a piece of kraft card with the same Cuttlebug folder as the first card and again I used clear embossing powder to achieve the leather look. Add a bit of ribbon for the laces.
Another simple to make card.
This next card is for the footballer.
for this card I made my own template for the ball to make the shaped card. I then cut the hexagon shapes in white card .
I used a digi stamp from DigiStamp Boutique
coloured with ZIG Kurecolor marker pens.
Before I mounted the image I sponged black stamp pad ink around edge of the ball.
These three cards are the first in a series of cards for our menfolk. I hope I have given you some ideas.
