OH Man! Challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique

Time to create something for the man in your life!  The new challenge, Oh Man!,  at The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog is hosted by Jenny and she explains it, "Fathers Day may be a way off yet but there are always other occasions and reasons for making something for the men in our lives. For this challenge create something which you feel has a more masculine look."

My Take on the Challenge

I used Stamperia's Imagine collection to create this card for my guy's birthday.  He's a car nut and spends his time turning piles of metal into streetrods.    I layered up some papers from the Imagine collection on the front.

 One thing I love about Stamperia's collections is that they always include lots of cut-apart elements and the circular tag on my card is one of those that I cut out with a scalloped die.  I wanted another layer so I added the oval kraft die cut.  That was kind of plain so I masked on some diamonds withantique gold paste and added the gent from theTim Holtz Baseboard Dolls collection.

I diecut two old jalopies from black cardstock and then smeared a bit of vintage photo paint on them to give them that old rusted look.  They now look just like rat rods! To finish off my card I added two Thought Tokens and a truck charm.

Inside I used Graphic 45's new policy die to make an envelope that is the perfect size for holding a gift card or cash.  I added some design paper to dress up the envelope and used Graphic 45's new Sentiment Stamps to add Happy Birthday.

And that's all there is to it!

  3. Maggi it's a fabulous card made even more special by the fact that you've gone to the trouble of decorating the inside as well as the outside. Such a perfect choice of papers for this theme xx

  4. Maggi, I bet your hubby loved his card to help celebrate his special day! I love your paper choices, and how you've added the gold embossing to the die cut to anchor all those great elements. And you even decorated the inside; something I don't often think to do. Great masculine card! Hugs!
