Manly Birthday Wishes


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.

Be sure to visit the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog for more inspiration and to join in on this week's Make It Manly challenge for a chance to win $20 to the store.
