How about a man's card for a change!

Afternoon all...
As the title suggests...I have a man's card to show you today! This golfer is taken from a lovely set of stamps designed by Clare Curd...
There is also a handyman with a Toolbox and a Fisherman...

I'm never sure how to make men's cards interesting so I thought that once I had the topper made and layered I would make it like a photo hanging on the wall.

I used a copper heart brad and some twine so it looked as though it was hanging from a picture rail...
The colours were chosen for the Colourcreate Challenge which is 'Mint, Chocolate and Cream' and the My time to Craft Challenge is 'Make it manly'.

I have another night of writing to finish my last NVQ Unit. I have a meeting with the special needs co-ordinator in the morning and in the afternoon my assessor is coming to take my file away to go through and check my work.
I am desperate to stay at home and get some more cardmaking done and I fancy a bit of sewing as well.
Thanks for dropping by...please leave me a little comment on your way out♥


  1. Really like the way you've made it like a frame, brilliantly....always hard to think of those finishing touches for men's cards.
    Hope you manage to get all your NVQ stuff finished.

  2. great coloring, I need to make more guy cards, it is hard though, maybe I will give that challenge a go!

  3. A fabulous 'man' card - love it! Thanks for joining the MTTC Challenge this week!

  4. Fab man's card Sally, beautiful colouring. I have that stamp set, but not inked it up yet! x

  5. great 'man' card!! Love the way it hangs like a picture!

  6. You are a busy bee really you are.

    And am with you on the NVQ side of things... My assesor is in school on Thursday.

  7. Great card Sally, love your colour combo and the frame idea was a great one, its so effective!

  8. Fab card Sally...I have had a few male cards to make lately..its a nightmare!

    I have also just found the note that was supposed to go in with the parcel I sent to you yesterday...what an airhead I am!!! So apologies for that!lol

  9. Hi Sally thank you so much for the lovely birthday card, this is a great mans card too.
    Happy crafting
