Okay...this is my first DT blog post for Pages2Scrap, so bear with me...
Now I don't know about you but I find it hard to make a boy or a men's card, I don't really have much in the way of products to make them with either!! But YAY my first DT kit had this great range of We R Memory Keepers Vintage 'T' papers, stickers, stamps and a few trinkets from my most favourite range 'Tim Holtz'!! So here are my creations!
Now I must admit that I had no idea what MVP meant, I had to ask my friends who I was creating with at the time, 'Most Valuable Player' okay then, that suits my son perfectly as he is always playing on his XBox! I added a distress piece of denim material to match the papers then layered the stickers together, tucked a few arrows and a fleur de lis sticker to extend the design and to add more interest, believe it or not I still have more stickers left on the sheet!!
This card is simple as I didn't think the surfer image needed much else, all I did was trim four pieces of the blue camouflage paper in a wavy pattern then distressed the edges, layered them on top of each other to replicate the surf. I cut the word WOW from one of the papers and attach it for the sentiment!
Seize the day! The Vintage T embossed tags are all you really need to make a great card, I further decorated the card by using a decorative punch along the top and bottom edges on a strip of the golf pants paper, wrapped white seam binding around it, cut a word from another paper then tied it to the card using one of the fabulous Tim Holtz mini paper clips, these are great for adding attachments!!
Bull Dog Card
I have a nephew who loves surfboards, the beach and has a Bull dog, so this card is perfect for him. The stamp set had this great surfboard image on it, so I stamped it on cream card using a range of Distress Inks, cut them out and lined them up along the bottom of the card. I added a word stripe, an embossed sticker border, white cord and that great bull dog sticker! I also sanded the papers more just to add interest.
Thank you so much for looking, I hope I have given you some inspirations for boy cards or even an idea somewhere. Remember.... leave a comment :-) Just so the boss knows you're looking he he
