Sandy with you today, Alison is a bit under the weather. She will be back with you next week. The Cheery Lynn Designs challenge this week is Make It Manly. Guy cards can be a challenge but this was a pretty quick card that I think would work great for a guy. Using my Royal Coved Rectangle Mega Reflections dies, I created the overlay on the card base and the center panel of my tent card. These dies are so versatile, you can create almost any size you need. I hand trimmed the card base and the patterned paper pieces using the dies as templates.
Rather than using flowers, I have added a mix of leaves, pines and an acorn to make this manly embellishment. I used some Distress ink to age the paper a bit. Finished size is 5.5 inches square. The paper is from the Paper Loft; the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
