For the Guys

With all of the flowery embellishments and girly scrapbooking papers out there, it can feel a bit daunting to make cards or layouts for the guys in our lives. Despite the challenge, though, I usually have a good time papercrafting for the boys.

This first card is similar to one I just made for our pastor's birthday. I'm donating this one as part of an assorted pack of cards for my daughter's school auction.

Stamps - SU! Noble Deer; Papertrey Ink - Out on a Limb (sentiment)
Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye - Organic Glitter Pack
Cardstock - Neenah Paper (natural); Core'dinations Chocolate Box
Markers - Copic Sketch
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink - Vintage Photo

On the Crafty Secrets member forum challenge this week, Lori asked us to make projects for the guys in our lives. This card will be for one of the sweet boys in my daughter's first grade class. Isn't this image fun?
