IMG_0272 (Medium)While on the subject of mens cards, which I think we were, here are a couple of quick makes, made while I had my graphic 45 papers out. the images are from graphic 45 A proper Gentleman, and although you can’t see it in the photo, I cut the same images twice, and 3’d them on top with foam pads. the embossing folder I used on the background layer is Cuttlebug clockworks, and I wrapped the whole layer with some string for a but more texture.Til tomorrow…

Graphic 45 .. a proper gentleman..

Before we start, I would just say that I have used this paper before, but I had the opportunity to purchase more, and grabbed it – it is so difficult to get paper suitable for male cards, and I have always loved these car images. I bought 2 sheets so that I could 3d the images, although it doesn’t show in the photo, I fussy cut the car image on the second sheet and omitted  parts of it, and put it on top of the first image with foam pads. The paper is of course Graphic 45 a proper gentleman, and I distressed all my edges. The cuttlebug folder is called clockworks, and I used stampin up cardstock and bakers twine.Now I must be off as I still have to shop tonight. Til tomorrow…..

graphic 45 kraft reflections

I bought a couple of sheets of Graphic 45 new range – Kraft Reflections because I thought they would make great mens cards, and this is my first design. I used some graphic 45 A proper Gentleman patterned paper, and some stampin up cardstock run through the cuttlebug witth a cuttlebug clockworks folder. The bakers twine is from stampin up.I have used lots of this bakers twine – it comes as a 25metre buy, and I am probably going to have to buy more! Back at work today – very sore feet – I will just be relaxing tonight! Til tomorrow…..
