Here’s the kind of Handy Randy I could use, but only with a stash like that!! For my post this week I’m using Handy Man by Kenny K and boy oh boy did I have difficulty with this masculine image, I think there should be a book or guide on how to make fabulous manly cards without them looking too pretty…
Any who, here’s what I did. I choose some design paper that could pass as masculine, paired that with a simple layout and minimal embellishments. I couldn’t resist a few rhinestones, after all they are blue. As a little bonus I attached a tag which just tucks in and is removable, this will be used for a custom message to the lucky guy who receives this card.
-Stamp: Handy Man(Whimsy)
-Paper: Lost & Found(My Minds Eye)
-Die Cuts: Createtables-Tag and Buttons(Marianne design)
-Embellishments: Brads-White(Recollections), Rhinestones-Aqua(Kaiser), Ribbon(My Stash)
I have one more thing to share with you all… I had planed to go see Lora today at the OCS store and my daughter(she’s 3) was coming along and so she decided to make Lora a card. I assisted with the glue and only gave a few suggestions but she did all the work and 99% of the design, and this is what she created. The sparkly thing was some “treasure” she found at the park, the popsicle stick was a part of her special “collection”, most of the other elements where things found on my desk aside from the heart, flower and butterflies that we did with punches.
Alissa Used Payton By Your Next Stamp and some Aqua rhinestones.
If my long post hasn’t taken up too much of your day, why not use some kraft paper and play along with our “KRAFT” challenge this month at One Crazy Stamper. There is a fabulous High Hopes prize pack up for grabs.
