This week at Dream Valley we have decided to challenge you to come up with something for the men in your life. Most of us find making cards for men quite difficult, so this will be a challenge, especially for me. We are being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi stamps who are offering one lucky prize winner a voucher for $21 to spend in their store. For more inspiration, go check out the fab things my teamies have come up with.
I made a card for my DH as it was his birthday. He is mad keen on fishing so I cut up his Angling Times for it (tee hee hee!). I started with a white card blank and topped it with some green card that I had embossed on the bottom half using Tim Holtz Texture Fades - Retro Circles (love this folder). Then I added a strip of the newspaper across the middle and also used the paper to make a rosette. In the centre of the rosette I added a green handmade paper star and a fish button. More buttons were added to the corners. The sentiment (CDs Fishtails) was punched out using Stampin' Up punches - the Large Oval for the sentiment itself, Extra Large Scallop oval to matt it and then finally I used the Decorative Label punch on newspaper for the final backing.
