Mens cards

Thought I'd make a couple of mens cards, as I always struggle with these and I like to keep a few made up.

The first one I have covered in paper from His & Her collection from Pink Petticoat and added a strip of navy card across the middle of the card. I have used a tie stamp from A Must Art in Navy, mounted this to a navy scalloped circle and added to the strip of navy card. I've then added a happy birthday greeting.

This card is continuing my quest to use up old embellishments. I bought a pack of DIY button ages ago and have hardly used them, they are a lot more detailed in the fleshm, but it's so hard to take a good picture at the moment. The paper had been in my stash for ages and the sentiment is from a See D's set.

Off to Northampton tomorrow for our Company kick off day, so I get to stay away for a night in a nice hotel and hubby gets the house to himself and no-one nagging about what he wants to watch!!!!

I sometimes struggle with mens cards too. It's okay if you are doing something for someone with a specific interest but if not it can be so hard. You cards look great and I may have to join you on your resolution of using up old stash, I have LOADS!
