It’s mid-week, friends, which means you just might know someone who could use a boost to get over Hump Day! This week, we’ve been featuring cards for big boys and little boys and, today, we’re paying homage to the big ones (thought they might be little at heart!) Designer Shelly Mercado has created a masculine card that’s all ‘guy’ without sacrificing fun. Check it out…
A Note from Shelly about her card…
I think cards with ties are so cute and this one is perfect for Father’s Day or for Dad’s birthday, or even as a ‘just because’ for a friend or special guy. I die-cut a tie from Little Bits Neckties out of Pumpkin, Blue Corn, Lemon Meringue, Peapod, Poppyseed and Red Pepper cardstock and used foam tape to attach them to my rectangle from Stitched Rectangle Stacklets.
The sentiment is from Punny Man and it has sentiments that are both punny and perfect for dad!
I love Earl Grey cardstock as a card base, it’s great for masculine cards! By embossing with a nice, neutral pattern, I’ve added a bit of visual interest and texture, while still keeping things clean and simple.
Thanks so much, Shelly, for sharing this cool card with us today! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for another card from Charmaine that’ll have you yelling ‘touchdown’!
