A Few More for the Boys

As I have a real lack of men's cards in my spares and charity boxes, I'm making a real effort this weekend to make some masculine cards

It's a bit hard to see, but the black circle has an impressed tread like a tyre

These ones feature the standard men's themes of motorbikes, tools, beer and sports!

One for the Girls and One for the Boys

What I enjoy the most about card making is the the variety of styles, techniques and embellishments you can use to make so many types of cards! 
These two are so different, one in a vintage, floral fussy style, the other more modern and simplistic.

Diary Cats

I was about to throw out my old pocket diary for last year, when I realised I could take out some of the pictures of cats and use them for cards.

So I carefully scored out some pages and recycled them into new birthday cards!

Rock Star Card

Using a couple of the guitar shapes from EMMC, this time to make a card for anyone who loves rock music (it could end up with my son!)

Its a bit grungy, but let's face it - so are many rock groups!

Wooden Embellishments

I love adding wooden embellishments to my cards and have discovered a new source of them - EEMC Craft Shapes. The order I placed Wednesday evening arrived this morning, so I used the light sleet outside as an excuse to stay in and craft!

Here is Moxxi with one of my cat cards - he was so tired from a day doing nothing, that he couldn't be bothered to move!

I've also used some of the wooden planes and dogs too

Animal ATC's

Had a play with some old stamps to make a couple of cat themed ATC's

then finished off making ones featuring a guinea pig and baby grey rabbit!
