For the men in your life!








Happy Friday to all of you!!!

The first week of school is almost over and we are getting used to the routine, the boys love to be back and see all their friends every day.

With 4 boys and a husband, I need to make masculine cards at least a couple of times a year.

I don't know about you, but they are not the easiest, I mean that kind of cards, LOL!

So when I find a set that works....like the set Guiding Light from Flourishes, the set gets good use. For this card I stamped the lighthouse image and coloured it with Prisma's and Gamsol, then I cut it out along the top and kept the bottom straight.

The clouds are made with the stamp from Impression Obsession, clouds, stamped with the mega rock block on a white piece of paper with light blue ink. Then I glued the lighthouse image on the clouds and cut it to size, I have matted it with the second largest die from the large deckled rectangles from Nestabilities.

The seagulls are done with a black Sharpie, there are 2 red mini brads from my stash in the right top corner. The twine is from West Trim Crafts, the sentiment from Just Rite, the set is called

Just Because and has a lot of nice little sentiments.

The white background is done with an embossing folder from Crafts Too, and I also used 2 dies from Sprightly Sprockets of Spellbinders, a must have for masculine cards!!

As always, Sheila carries all those supplies in the best store ever, SGD!!

Have a great weekend, and happy crafting, Anja

Hoi Anja,

Prachtige vuurtorenkaart. Ik heb iets met vuurtorens, misschien van de vakantie's die we jaren hebben doorgebracht op Schiermonnikoog.

Groetjes Thea

Ja, hij is leuk. Een echte Canadese vuurtoren, vind ik. Want wat ZIJN er toch veel bij jullie..
Tja, een mannenkaart: lijkt mij ook heel moeilijk, hoor.
Groetjes,
Ingrid

You make the best masculine cards!
I have the deckled rectangle Nesties, but I have a hard time using them - now that I see yours, I'm going to try again. I love that the bottom of the red panel looks deckled too!
