Guy card

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all doing great! Since it's vacation time, most of you mommy's must be busy now :)

We too had a busy week. Managed to make this guy card for the Create  Something Catchy Challenges with their inspiration photo.
I had this blue checked and stripe paper  from papermania with me for a long time. So I thought it's time I put it to some use. Here is the card I made:

I wanted to give a rugged look to the card so distressed two pieces of white card stock with frayed burlap distress ink, one little stronger than the other. And some faux stitching around the edges. I drew the tie  (I know you are smiling ), :) and wrote the sentiment. Was inspired by the colours blue, red and the jeans and the tie from the picture to create this card.

I know this is not my type of card!! But have given a sincere effort. Hope it's good!

Thanks for visiting today and for your sweet comments :)

  5. Hi Sarah,
    This card is lovely - It is really hard to find ideas for "a guy card" - yet boys do have occasions to give cards as do girls ... I hope I could use your idea to a coming occasion (I'm not as talented with cards, but I might succeed in draving a tie and gluing it on a background :)
    Sunshine to your Sunday!
