Today I have card for a man, (well two cards actually). Unfortunately men's cards are not my greatest creations and I take ages to come up with an idea but I managed in the end. I was asked to make a 90th birthday card for a very special gentleman, and I was asked to make it by an equally special lady, my ex-mother-in-law. The card is for her dad who is 90 on Friday.

I've had this stamp for quite a long time but it has served me well over the last couple of years. It is a Funstamp called Gent's Waistcoat. I stamped the image on several pieces of different patterned card and then cut them out and layered them up to give a decoupage effect.

The second card I made was for myself and my daughter to send.

This card was not meant to look quite like this...the idea was to use a Nestie as a frame and some Distress Inks to create a background but I was a bit too over enthusiastic with the inks and caught ink on the outside of the Nestie, not to be put off I continued until I ended up with a white the end I quite like the effect. I then just stamped some trees in black over the inked shape and added a sentiment.
