Blues

Everywhere here stark white this morning! Quite a lot of snow last night and it's still here!
A 'Man' card to share today as the 'man' stash is really low so made a couple of train/boat/plane themed ones this week for the card box.
A blue colour scheme for this one as the ship's wheel background paper I have had for a long time and never used.
The other paper was just an odd leftover bit but was big enough to use to cut a circle and a couple of banners.

The stamp was inked with Versafine Majestic Blue and I lightly sponged round the edge of the white card before distressing and layering onto the blue base.   

The charm secured with some blue/white twine and the sentiment stamp just tucked behind.

Challenges -

Used up a few bits too so over to the Playground with my woolly hat and furry boots to make a snowman!
Have a great day whatever you're doing. x

  12. Stocking up on the male cards is on my list for this week Viv, always have plenty for the ladies but no surprise there. This one is just perfect though and like the banner arrangement.

    Think we will leave it just at craft for today !

  16. Absolutely super Viv. A brilliant inspiration card for men, that oh so awkward species! That spotty paper looks very familiar, I think I have some too. No snow for me yet, thankfully xx

  19. I love nautical cards, they can be gender neutral, but this one is definitely on the masculine side of the scale. Love the amount of nautical themed elements!

  20. A fantastic masculine card Viv and I love the ship' wheel dp in the background and the stamped image is perfect with the added anchor charm on the baker's twine and the three little pieces of paper to form a banner are a great addition. A really clever design! x
