Generally we all struggle to make a male card ... but I recently got myself a Scorepal and absolutely love it and have been looking for anything and everything to score lately :) While looking at the Scorepal website for projects I stumbled across this 'shirt' project. It was in imperial measurements (I have a metric scorepal) so I had to convert but that was quite easy. Here is a card I made for my BIL ...
here is a close up of the shirt ... I even went so far as to get Neil to show me how to do a mans tie so that I could make one out of ribbon! (I didn't do a great job of it!)
I make this card for quite a few challenge sites ... funny how it ticks all the right boxes.
The sketch is from Card Positioning Systems, the male birthday card is for Crafty Creations, the shirt is for clothing challenge over at Kaboodle Doodles and for the dimension challenge at Creative Card Crew, the patterned paper design is for the dots/spots, stripes and ribbon challenge over at Quirky Crafts and the card is also for the 'bring out the old' challenge over at Top Tip Tuesdays where I have used patterned paper that is from Daisy Bucket designs 'Nantucket Island' papers from 2008 - OMG that is 4 years old and I have also used a paisley embossing folder from Cuttlebug which I also think is quite old!
materials - Bazzill grape & purple pizazz card, AC robins egg, C'D harborside card; Daisy Bucket Designs 'nantucket island' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Staz On jet black ink; Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder; Scorepal; 6mm lilac stitched grossgrain.
Thanks for looking.
