a boy card

I am actually sitting in my computer chair and not kneeling at the computer...so there is hope for me yet! I am not completely better but I defiantly feel better and everyday my back isn't in quite as much pain as the day before! yippee!! :) Who knows...maybe I will be able to sit long enough to do some stamping soon!!
I thought I would share this card that I demo'd at my last Stamp Club. The girl who was the hostess asked if I could show some masculine cards...she said she feels like everything is girlie and I agreed...sometimes boy cards are hard to come by! This was a fairly simple card. I stamped the image on vanilla cardstock and attached it behind the close to cocoa piece. I used my hobby blade to cut out a rectangle...I just eyeballed it. I cut it smaller then the image and then I tore it the rest of the way to the size I wanted. I did a little sponging and added a star and a brad. I also added a jumbo eyelet and a piece of taupe ribbon.

I love this card Tara! It's even better in person. I came home after our meeting and made one. I didn't want to forget how to make it so I cased this card right away. Thanks for all the ideas on making guy cards.

This is a great masculine card!! I love that star in the middle and how you placed the jumbo eyelet with the ribbon! Fantastic!
