It's A Mans World

Good Evening Everyone, 

Today I have for you a card that I made for my dad for his birthday that he celebrated yesterday. 

I always find it really hard to make mens card, and January is a nightmare, as I have three close together to make. 


So the card is a 8x8 card blank matted with a backing paper that I printed of the Boofle Cd from Do Crafts. 

The stripe paper that is matted on the dark brown card, is printed from the Wellington Cd 

Around this section I have used Gardening Twine, and looped it around the border before securing on the back and sticking to the card. 

For the corners I used a Cuttlebug Corner Die

The Image is a Lili of The Valley Rubber Stamp - This little cutie is called "Toot Toot"

I have coloured the image in using a selection of Promarkers and Graph' It Marker Pens. 

The promarkers are 
Scarf - Burgundy, Cardinal Red, Ruby
Arm - Royal Blue
Wheels - Cool Grey 1, 2 and 3 
Hair - Warm Grey 1

The Graph' It Markers are
Hat - 3150, 3160 , 3190
Car- 7240, 7250, 7260
Skin- 4120, 4125, 4135

 I cut the image out and matted it on a dark brown mat and then matted that onto a Nestabilitie shape called Nobel Rectangles - I got mine from Samuel Taylor (I in no way work for these, but I do use these and not had any problems with them, but obviously you still need to be careful) I believe it is shape 5 and 4 that I used together to create the frame.
 I also used Opulant Ovals for the sentiment and the Sentiment is stamped from a sentiment stamp sheet (no idea of the make though sorry)

To finish the card I have added card candi, and gems. 


The Challenges I am entering this into are:

A Gem of A Challenge -#111 One for the boys - 01/02
Paper Creators Challenge # 19 Anything Goes - 01/02

Well that is it for me, I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping in.
