Male Cards

OK, I have trouble making men/boys cards as I have told you all before... but as this is the month for both my husband and sons birthday, I had to try a little harder didn't I! I decided it was time to get the 'Surf's Up' stamp set which I have been eyeing off for some time to make Mitchell's (son) card. I was really happy with the end result of that one. Mitch said 'sick - did you make this mum, that's awesome!' So as you can imagine, I was very chuffed!

For the hubbies card, I had purposely ordered the new Urban Garden and Urban Oasis DSP just to make men's cards and scrap pages. I used matching card stock and the only stamp I could find to fit in the 1 1/4" square was a retired one from the Taggers Dozen set... I used the En Francais background stamp on the base of the card. (love that one) The ribbon is the new Kiwi Kiss in colour. I have sort of concertinaed the ribbon using mini glue dots to hold it in place. Hubby was very impressed!! Seeing both their reactions to the cards made the effort all the more worth while xx


  1. I do like the Just Surfin stamp set. For such a small set, it's amazing what you can do with it.

    I see you had a go at ribbon folding, once was enough for me - I am surprised I didnt end up in the nut house after that! You did a lovely job of that too.
