It's Alison here today and I just have a few projects to share with you,
I did have a couple more planned... alas our recent relocation and family 'stuff' mean my 24 hours each day had significantly reduced 'spare' time!!
I like to give myself a little theme and chose Masculine,
so I've created a couple of quick and easy cards for the Men in our life.
The cards are all made with the mini paper pack from Feature Arts Paper and is a great range about Cruising.
I simply cut some squares of patterned paper and layered it with some cork sheet, a canvas star and a couple of pieces of inked chipboard.
Another quick and simple design - a couple of squares of patterned paper, inked and adhered to the centre of a card base. Trim a striped piece into a banner, and a cluster of embellishments - chipboard cogs have been inked and then coated with Glossy Accents or similar to finish.
Chipboard pieces are such a great way to add a bit of jazz to a simple card. The negative or rubbish from a cog set is inked and then used as a cute frame on a focal point.
A couple of squares of patterned paper, cork sheet, clear stickers and a few pieces of a great mixed cog design roughly inked to add a bit of a weathered look. A couple of extra pieces of metal to finish.
It isn't always easy to create cards for the men but maybe try some simple designs for you next cards?
