One for the boys!

Life is back now to it's normal taxi service this week after the end of the panto and the usual extra curricular activities have kicked in for my children.  However apart from my MIL staying I am free to get back to crafting a bit and so made this card for a friend and as it was for a chap thought I'd share it with you because I think it is fair to say that it is a theme that we all struggle with.
The Celebrations DSP are fab for this type of male card with rich primary colours and I've teamed them up with various shades of blue and used a retired clear button to add some texture.  Under the button I punched several circles in matching colours to make a different feature and I've sewn on the colours with silver elastic thread.  Paper piercing and the crimper add more texture and the sentiment is from the Punch Bunch sale-a-bration set.  This was embossed in white using the craft whisper white ink  pad and white emboss powder and I've also stamped it in poppy parade on poppy parade cs and cut out the piece I wanted to highlight the greeting. 
Happy Birthday Stuart.
Back soon with more.
Hugs Zx


  1. This is lovely Zoe, really masculine.

  2. I am doing Male birthdays this week too - need to do a basket for school with some variety in it! Lovely inspiration - thanks

  3. I love the angles of this one Zoe, it really adds to the masculine feel & the dotty background just stops it being too sharp. Great colours too (I'm always a bit stuck with Poppy Parade tbh. Yay! for Tuesday xx
