For boys and men in your life

Hello Friends

Its been a while since I have blogged so when I notice the Crafters Companion Challenge on their Facebook page was the theme of "Masculine" I decided in for penny and in for pound why not give it try. 

So I wanted something that wasn't the usual blues or greens (like most boys and mens cards are like) so decided on cool colour theme of Black, Grey and White. For me it brings air of fresh and modern style but with a cute twist with using Mulberry Wood Everyday CD ROM.

A friend of ours is retiring so I thought why not use this challenge to make the retirement card for the person in question.

Also I was having sort out of my crafty stash and found lots of Peel off's that I've not used for while, Its a real shame as Peel off's seem to have gone out of fashion and I love them as their so versatile and easy to use, so decided to use them for my card and start Peel off's revolution to bring them back.   

Recipe of items used - Background and topper from Crafters Companion Mulberry Wood Everyday CD ROM  (UK) used in Serif Craft Artist to change the background colour - Peel off's Starfoam - Grey card by Papermilldirect - Black and White Card - Assorted buttons in grey, white and black - Embossing folders by Craft lifestyle by quickutz Classic collection - Die cut topper cut on Silhouette Cameo of course. 

I really enjoyed making this card as it was nice to use different colours other than greens and blues for the boys and men in your life.

This will be my entry for Crafters Companion May Challenge and Sisters of Craft Blog
