Just Add Ink #28 - A Man Card

When I saw this challenge I let out a big sigh because I do struggle with male cards but the girls at Just Add Ink made this challenge easier by giving us the colours to use as well. Half the problem was solved.

I decided to make a card for Father's Day seeing that it is not too far away. My goodness where is this year going!!!

So here are the colours:- And here is my card:-
When I look at it now, I think I should have stamped up my image on white cardstock or even vanilla but anyway I am happy with it. I hope my Dad will like this one!!!

Happy stamping,

Love those Baja Breeze leaves - what a gorgeous touch!

Danielle Rack said...

Love it! especially the touch of ribbon, still very masculine.

Great card Karen!! I think we all seem to stuggle with masculine cards - at least I certainly do!

I absolutely love the leaves coming out from behind the greeting and I love the brad in the centre of the ribbon great job.

This is a fantastic card, and perfect for fathers day! I like it stamped on the kraft, I think white or vanilla may have been too stark ... this is just perfect :)
