For the Men in your Life

For the brand new fortnightly challenge over at Morgans ArtWorld Challenge Blog the theme is For the Men. I know we all have problems with the masculine cards because we can't put flowers on them, that doesn't mean you can't embellish them. This is what I came up with.
Morgan Fitzsimon dragon baby in egg.
and here is the inside of the card.

Card Tip:

Just because its a card for a guy doesn't mean you can't embellish it, you can see i have used a punch and gems to accent the corners as well as a lace sticker peeking out from behind instead of ribbon.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock: white card base, Quill black and white card stock, Ranger water colour card stock.
Papers: Echo Park that's my boy.
Stamps: Morgan Fitzsimon dragon baby in egg, inside sentiment created on computer, Justrite clear stamps 
Ink: Memento tuxedo black ink.

Any Holiday with Diecut Divas

Its a brand new challenge and a brand new sponsor over at Diecut Divas. If you live in Australia and buy any of the craft magazines you would have seen the advertisements for Le Crystelle, well I can attest that their products and their customer service is awesome. Over at Diecut Divas we will be showcasing Le Crystelle all month with a theme of Any Holiday.  I decided to answer the call of Betty from Simply B Stamps and do a card for her upcoming Sons wedding, here is my make.




Card Tip:

With everything on this card base, I found it was too heavy to stand up - so I added some bakers twine, this way it will still fold up and gives enough tension to remain upright.
