A Great Teacher

I received a request to make a card for a male teacher as a thank you. As many of you know, making a masculine card is like having your hands tied behind your back or something.... I mean, no flowers, no ribbon, no cutzie little pearls or bling? I mean... what the heck is left?

So I admit I snuck a little of all of those "forbiddens" on this card, but I'm hoping the note paper background, the shades of brown and the scripted patterned paper are enough to "man this up". I love the quote ... another great stamp from Quietfire Designs.

The inside I kept very simple and carried the note-paper theme through. The stamp is from a beautiful Verve set called A Happy Hello.

Well that's it for me tonight. One more day of work to go! If you look really hard... you can see the weekend from here. Oh yeah!

I think you did a fantastic job on this masculine card. Even though there is a few 'girly' things on it, the colors say 'masculine".

Holy Smokes Carla! You're on quite a roll here of late aren't you? Your male teacher card is exceptional and I'm certain it's going to be deeply appreciated. Just when I think you couldn't possibly outdo yourself, you go and prove me wrong.

If this is you crafting with your hands tied behind your back, the rest of us don't stand a chance! Lol! Seriously it's a great card and I cannot imagine the teacher NOT being touched.
