Blue And Stars

This card made it to the Top 3 @Dies R Us Challenge: Challenge #103!!! And @Let's Craft and Create: Challenge #140 - ANYTHING GOES + option LOTS OF LAYERS (#58 is me :)

Hello Bloggers,

A masculine card again today. With tags, too :)
 I added some cheese cloth and used modelling paste and a couple of stencils to create some texture.
The sentiment says "Proficiat", i.e. Happy Birthday. I used a label maker and some rather transparent plastic tape to create it. It barely shows in the photo, but in the real life it's a lot more prominent. :)

Masculine Card With Tags

This card made it to the Chicks Top Picks @4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #414 Music!

Hello Bloggers,

A masculine birthday card today. Thus, no flowers, no pink, no fluffy stuff...

How do you make a card for a guy, who is not into fishing?!! :)

My recipe for this one is: black and white, tags and a dragonfly (no butterflies!)
I used an ancient embossing folder with what seemed to me a "man compatible" pattern to make one of the tags - just inked the folder inside and ran it through the machine, it's an old technique. Made me happy, though, as it added some texture and "unflattened" the card.

String in the tags, no ribbons... (mental mantra "no-fluffy-stuff-no-flowers-no-fluffy-stuff-no-flowers-no-fluffy-stuff-no-flowers...")

Why are masculine cards so difficult?!!!    :-)
