Father's Day Card

Hello Bloggers,

Father's Day is next week, so a card for a man today. Does this combination of colors and elements look masculine enough?
Fluffy flowers and pearls are not always exactly the things to put on a man's card, so this time I decided to go architectural. Well, sort of... :) This is a big card - an A4 folded in halves. I added several embossed and padded layers and elements to create some volume.

  2. Hoi Lena,
    We don't ask for a masculine card, but a card for man and children ( not a baby card!)
    so your card for father day is very good and it looks like a wallet! Beautiful are all the layers and in the red, white and bleu....the colors from de Nederlandse flag, hihi.
    You've made a lovely creation and thanks for joining us at Scr@p-Cards Challenge!
