I struggle making boy cards. I like flowers. I like lace. I like girly stuff. But those male cards...wow...I'm always looking at them thinking I'd like to girl them up a bit.
Anywho....I spent a few hours yesterday making more boy type cards. The Simon Says Stamp kit for May was boy-ish. See?
When I first saw it I thought..."Oh, no!"....but then I saw some really cute cards made with it so it gave me a little hope.
And I was happy with the results. :) Big smile here.
They were fun to make!
The first one I'll share is one I made for my son who recently gave me some gifts for Mother's Day and my birthday. He asked me tongue in cheek if those gifts would warrant a card. Not only was he tongue in cheek but I also detected a sure note of sarcasm. I know he secretly likes the cards but oh my....he will never admit it much! That would be too girly of him he thinks. LOL! We do use a lot of sarcasm in our household. I use sarcasm in my blog. I feel perfectly at home with a bit of sarcasm. I'm good with it. So. There.
Anyway, here is my card:
I should have made a card that said "Hey Dude! Be nice to your mother!"
But instead I put this on the inside:
I used the Lawn Fawn Borders 1 die to make that cool curve. The papers came with the kit and are Fancy Pants and really cute! I used white embossing powder by Zing to heat emboss the sentiments.
And because I couldn't leave it alone I had to add some white pen stitching. My pen stitching looks like my machine stitching....uneven and crooked. LOL!
And what is better than getting handmade card? Well, getting $ in it. I slipped in some cash and told my son to buy some treats for his dog or something nice for his new wife. Sarcasm. I love it!
Happy Crafting and Happy Sunday (no sarcasm there!)!
