Quick Male Themed Card

Tuesday, 17 February 2015  |  Admin

We are always being asked to come up with card ideas for the men in your lives, so today we designed this one which is very quick and easy.

Starting with an A5 black card blank we then cut & mounted a slightly smaller mat using white pearlescent card which had its corners cut with a Martha Stewart punch.   A black frame was die cut along with the words Happy Birthday. The words were stuck down using wet glue but the frame was added using foam pads to give it some height and dimension.  We then painted a wood silhouette shape from Prima Marketing with black acrylic paint, when dry we mounted it on the card inside the frame also using foam pads. The silhouette wood shapes can be found here on our website.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We decided to leave ours very plain, but of course you can add any other embellishments to personalise it for that special man in your life.

Time for a quick cuppa before climbing the apples and pears to bed so until next time..........................

Happy crafting xx
