Cars for the boys

Hello there, Hope you are having relaxing weekend? Well I have not posted for while as I had some technical problems and within that I have been a little stressed out and sure enough my anxiety as come back with vengeance, so thats why I have been slightly quiet but I'm hoping to get back to normal now on.

I thought you might like to see this card I created especially for boy who is almost teenager but not quite there yet, that awkward age I suppose? Men's and boys cards can be difficult to get right but luckily I have the perfect CD rom that was purchased some years ago, but it came in handy for sure. 

The CD rom in question is the My Craft Studio CD rom called Men-y happy returns and was available through their papercraft library. I'm so glad that it's in my crafty stash as its helped me so much over the years. 

29cm x 9.5cm folded in half at the top

Totally loving the stitched detail and fits perfectly for boy's card, the stitched effect was created using my beloved Silhouette Cameo.

As always I leave details of the items I have used and where you can purchase the items from. just click on the highlighted link and it will take you straight there.

  1. This is fabulously boy-ful ... new word! I struggle with cards for men... urgh... they are so difficult to please! No pinks, no frills, no bling... what's the point of making a card without glitter! You've got it nailed with this one... they dig cars, so stick one on a card! Brilliant! Nathan will be thrilled.
    hugs, Asha
