A Little Testosterone

Time for A MAN CARD. No cutzie, no pink, no ribbon, no flowers (okay... maybe a little is from Stamping Bella after all...).

I had fun doing a little paper piecing and paper piercing (...say that 10 times fast...) on this one. Haven't done either in a while.

This card is for my brother-in-law and I need to be at our family party in an hour. Nothing like last minute!!

So on that note.......... HAPPY BIRTHDAY GARY!!
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Paper Trey Ink (sentiment)
Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Making Memories Cosmopolitan Petite Paisley Blue DP (that's a long name for a piece of paper)
Assessories: Golf ball brads, black string
Tools: Copic markers, MS Edge Punch, Spellbinders Nestibilities & ribbon label
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Carla, this is awesome. Love everything about the card, from the paper piecing (that is a tongue twister saying it fast! LOL), to the fence, to the brads (they do look like golf balls!) Great job!

Carla, that is one fabo man card!!! I like that the fence border you punched looks more like a graphic because you punched it out of patterned paper.

Carla said...

Well, Carla, it's gorgeous! Your coloring is amazing, and the card is masculine, but not boring or predictable! Man cards are hard, and you've done a great job on this one!

Amazing guy card, the golf ball brads are the perfect touch! Nice paper piecing too, it's been awhile since I've done that.
