Birthday Time

Thank you to all my crafty pals for your lovely comments and a big welcome to my latest pal. I have had such great comments to read and will now go for a wander around and hopefully my comments won't be too misspelt or go missing as I shall try doing them from my tablet, tucked up on the sofa. I had a very slow start today and just tucked up in my craft den to make a quick card which did not end up as quick. I am sure I cut the embellishments more than once but got interrupted and they disappeared .  I have also had fun comments about adding to wish lists, I would have to say that apart from being addicted I have focused on dies that would be very suitable for male cards. Also my love of Art Deco is often at the forefront of what I buy.  I do find it difficult to put doilies on male cards – lol, and will have to pay better attention to how my pals embellish their male cards. 

Paper and card - card blank is a 6 inch square 
my backing paper is made in Word printed on buff heavy paper 
and cut with Die-namics Insert It Notebook die
Other Dies used :- X-cut Pocket Watch dies and
Die-namics Howdy Frame and 
Labels & Tabs to create the small square embellishments.

  2. Flora another great male card, you are so right you can't put doilies on a mans card.

    That's the great thing about a tablet you can sit and be comfortable on the sofa, Take care Hazel

  5. Flora I think I must be one of a few who enjoys making male cards. Maybe it's because I have a house full of males?!
    I have used the clock theme a few times for men with comments like Time for another birthday, Slow down the clock etc.. I've also picked up bits of watches and clocks at car boots to use as embellishments and have even found myself in the garage hunting down nuts and bolts etc...The mind boggles!
    Have fun!
    Hugs Erika.

  27. A lovely male card Flora, I love making male cards - probably because I have three of them to make for and then of course they all have male friends as well. I find buttons for the younger ones and brads for the older ones are my embellishments of choice.

  30. Hi Flora - you've done a great job with this Male card - your design is fab. I really struggle to come up with ideas for "male" cards - why can't men like fairies and glitter - it would make the task much easier!!
