Morning All! It’s Wednesday already, we’re in June and another week’s simply flying by – I'll be onto Christmas prep before I know it (at least I should be now that we’re in June and I have an all day Christmas class in August!).
However, before I start unwrapping the baubles and playing the Christmas CDs, there is Father’s Day on the calendar. Some of the ladies at a recent workshop asked me to demonstrate ‘male’ cards. The new mini catalogue has provided us with a number of new masculine images, so I dug out ‘Sail Away’ and had a play with a nautical colour theme of Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red and Crumb Cake.
The ‘waves’ were created with the curly label punch, the background textured using the square lattice embossing folder and the sentiment is taken from the level 2 hostess set ‘something to celebrate’. I added some gold brads and some bakers twine from my stash. Masculine cards are normally something I struggle with, but I quite enjoyed playing with this one, so I might dig out the motorcycle stamp this week and have a play with that too.
