A Man card and More Boxes!

Hello Everyone

I hope you are enjoying my more regular posts. Today I have two offerings for you. The first is a 'man' card! It was a special request from Elaine who comes to one of my monthly classes.
...
We all agreed that man cards and presents are the hardest - but I was happy with this gender neutral design! :D





The background stamp is called 'Sanded' and gives a great effect on the Creamy Caramel cardstock. The designer paper is from the Tea & Crumpets collection, which I just love - a great mixture of browns, yellows and pinks.
...
The olive image is from A Touch of Nature - such a great stamp set - there will be more samples using this set coming up soon. It is stamped in Old Olive ink, (of course), then the leaves are coloured using a Mellow Moss marker and the olives are painted with Elegant Eggplant ink.
...
We finished the card with linen thread, which is easy to attach with a glue dot at the back.
...
One final project, versions of which I have showed before - but they look SOOOO cute! Stacking boxes - love them!
...
More of those Tea and Crumpets papers and a spot of the It's Beautiful wheel went together to make these sweet stacks.
Let me know what you think!

  2. Well done with the man's card. Love the mix of textures from the sponging and twine and sanded background. Great rugged feel to it.

  3. I like the simplicity and textures of the first card. Really good for a guy or gal. The pink boxes are so pretty. They could be a present all on their own.
