I have finally created a card that would be appropriate for the male species! Well, I've done masculine cards before but went "meh" when I finished them. This one I actually love. I was at my local stamp store recently...the store features fabulous sample cards throughout and I came across one that incorporated wire and just loved it. So bought the stamp set...Rising Stars by Paper Smooches along with the matching dies and set to work creating my own version.
Funny story about wire...for the scrapbookers out there...remember when it was so popular to put it on scrapbook pages? Yep, I had all the tools and all the wire and it was a lot of fun. That box of wire supplies has sat unused for many years! Ok, now to the funny story. Over 12 years ago (I was living in another house) I was working on a scrapbook page in my little scrapbook nook in my bedroom. I was using said wire. I looked down and wondered where some red ink came from as I was not using pens or anything that had red ink. Well, lo and behold...I realized I was BLEEDING on my scrapbook page! I had apparently pricked myself with the wire and was dripping blood on my page. Well, I had put a lot of time into that page and was NOT going to redo it. So I wiped off what I could and then told my husband that if he ever needed a DNA sample to go to the scrapbook from 2002 that had the fall trip to Las Vegas in it! LOL!
Anyway, on to my wire card and thankfully, I did NOT bleed on these creations!
I made this one with Stampin' Up papers and inks, a My Finest Thing border die and some LifeCrafts circle dies:
So I decided to make another one in his school colors of red, white and blue....I added a little yellow because it just needed something else:
And, of course, these cards would be perfectly lovely for the feminine species too! :) No gender specificity here!
Well, that's it for today...off to do other wild and exciting things!
