I made this card that I'm saving for my husband for Valentine's Day--I used ivory linen cardstock, navy blue cardstock and kraft cardstock (scored with my new Scor-It my parents gave me for Christmas), "I Love You" stamped sentiment (studio g), painted die cut hearts (Sizzix), brads (the Paper Studio), and hemp cord. I didn't have any brads that matched the cards, so I painted them. We'll see how that holds up. Hopefully, I'll be back with a card for Katie's bonus sketch. I already have an idea for a birthday card for my son. I just need to find the time to make it. Thanks for looking!

One of my crafting goals for the new year is to try and make more masculine cards. I have a husband, a son, a dad, and two brothers so I'm always in need of cards for guys. I start off with good intentions, but I also end up adding silk flowers or ribbons or other non-masculine embellishments. Here's my card for the challenge--
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
I used a green pre-made card (DCWV), a light orange card cut up to use for cardstock (Target clearance), patterned paper (Provo Craft Slab), flower stamp (Kolette Hall) with watercolor pencils, die cut tag (Sizzix) with "Happy Birthday" sentiment (Stampin' Up), eyelets (Making Memories), and ribbon from my stash. Thanks for looking!

And one for Heidi's bonus sketch--
I used blank cards I bought on clearance at Target. The car patterned paper is Sandylion, and the other patterned papers and cardstock are scraps from my stash--I can't remember who makes them. Kazan's card has a Stampin Up "Happy Birthday" sentiment and Making Memories eyelets. Heidi's card has embossed cardstock (Cuttlebug), Sizzix die cut letters, and a button my from stash. Thanks for looking!

I used textured blue cardstock (Archiver's clearance), brown cardstock with embossing highlighted with blue ink and border punch (Making Memories/Cuttlebug/Archival Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue/Martha Stewart punch), swirl patterned paper (Provo Craft slab?), "Congratulations" stamp in brown ink (Kolette Hall/StazOn Timber), and buttons and ribbon from my stash. Thanks for looking!
