Hello lovely crafty friends, another month has whizzed by and my good intentions of posting more regularly have fallen by the wayside yet again. Can you believe we’re midway through June already, it’s scary
Dawny has invited me back onto the Papertake Weekly team so I’m hoping if I have to make a card every week for that then I’ll be able to do at least one blog post a week – that’s the plan anyway! Thanks for all your lovely comments on my card last month too, I really appreciated them all especially after I’ve not been the best blogger in town!!
The EVERYTHING GOES WITH AN IMAGE challenge over at the Ribbon Girl this month is to CREATE A MASCULINE PROJECT. You can use any image you like and we're looking forward to seeing them on this 'everything goes - use any image' challenge. Make you you take a look at what the DT have made too if you need a bit of inspiration. It doesn’t have to be a card, we like to see all your shaped cards, boxes, candles and projects of all kinds!
I stuck with a card because I had to make one for Father’s Day. The Lili of the Valley Vintage Boys is my favourite of their Art Pads and I use it for all my male cards when I don’t have the time or inclination to colour…
I mixed and matched my papers from two different Lili of the Valley pads - Always & Forever solids and Baskets & Bunnies
The frame is stuck on with foam pads and then you can’t really see on the picture but I shaped my little golfer round an embossing tool before I stuck him on with Pinflair so he has quite a bit of dimension
I did the ‘Dad’ sentiment on the computer and then stamped the blank tag from the Christmas Sentiment tags set (which is very useful!)
I used a ‘lil Inkers stitched circle die and Memory Box clouds
The rest of the goodies I used are of course all from the Ribbon Girl: ivory jute mesh ribbon, chocolate brown and ivory button twine, chocolate heaven flat back pearls and a charm. They have a huge selection of charms and I think they’re such a lovely embellishment, especially for male cards when you can’t always use flowers and sparkly bits
I hope you like my card, I’m going to do a bit of gardening now while the sun is still out – my garden is a bit neglected at the moment so needs a good tidy up before I get my bedding plants in
Enjoy your Monday evening whatever you’re up to…
