A MAN card

Hi girls,

As a rule, I don't generally tend to make many MAN cards as they are usually a nightmare to have to think about. But, I got this digi stamp from Di's Digi Downloads and had to find a good use for it, to make me feel better about downloading it.

It's a lovely image that just about sums up every man I know, with the odd exception so I thought today would be MAN day. I went to my trusted 'Inspiration Jar' and pulled out a few ideas and this is what I created.

Here's what I did:

The designer papers are from my stash and therefore I cannot tell you who make them, but they were only very small pieces so I decided to use them up.

Two pieces of blue designer paper stuck down and mounted onto black card stock with only a very small border and then mounted onto the base card. I added some blue spotted ribbon, wasn't sure about this but I think it works?? and then the image, which was coloured with my Pro Marker pens and coloured pencils.  I drew a circle around the areas I wanted (using a glass) and then cut around it. I roughed the edges up slightly using my craft knife.  I then cut a scalloped circle using my nesties and Big Shot and mounted the image onto that. I added the sentiment, which I handwrote and mounted onto black cardstock and then added the gemstones. Hope you like it???

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today.
Hugs, Fae xxx
