Hello crafty visitors. Welcome to my blog.
Back again I am with another 'man' card. Seems that's all I'm making at the mo (not really though) but when I'm on a roll, I've just got to keep going. Do need lots of these during the year so it's all good.
This one was made with a mix of Maja and Kaisercraft papers.
I'm really liking the look of those tied down tags and so I've made a couple like that now. Actually have a few more in the pipeline as well so you just may get sick of seeing these but, as I said earlier, when I'm on a roll ....
.. and flairs!! Another fave at the mo. Lizzy Hill got me started on these so, blame her, I do. LOL!! I actually found quite a lot of these in my stash. I reckon I've had them for years and had totally forgotten about them. Coming in handy now though.
Metal cogs (always a fave of mine for 'man' cards) with a few prills (love those) and some washi tape (yep! Another fave at the mo.).
Attached a few brads .. and more prills.
Another flair .. a tiny one this time .. and, you guessed it, more prills.
The usual on the inside ..
.. and the finished card!!
I find with these double fold cards that you really need a closure if you want them to lay flat. On the feminine ones I usually just wrap a ribbon around it. It looks pretty and it certainly does the job. For a 'man' card though, I find magnets are the way to go and I have found the perfect ones to use. They are from Basic Grey and they are fabulous. Slim and super strong they are perfect for cards and for mini albums too. I have found that even with 3 or 4 layers of dp in between they still stick beautifully. So, if you're looking for some decent magnets, get the Basic Grey ones .. I love them!!
Well, that's it from me for now. Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look at my creations. I hope I have inspired you in some small way.
Have a fabulous week!!
Take care and God Bless.
