Cute Card Thursday - Its a Men's World


Today I am posting this card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which focuses on men's cards. I have made this card for my husband's birthday, which he seemed to like a lot. I especially like the effect of the striped paper which I feel goes well with macsuline cards.

Materials:

Pizzaz Vintage Papers by HOTP
White Card stock
Pipoos Clear Alphabeth Set
Sizzlits Party Time Set by Sizzix
Edging Scissors
Black ink

Tools

Big Shot Machine

How to:

  1. Cover the front of a tall card using striped paper and then cut a smaller piece of rectangular paper to cover the middle section as shown. Distress the edges using black ink
  2. Cut a narrow strip of white card for the top and bottom edges. Using edging scissors cut a one edge to create a scalloped effect.
  3. Die cut a present three times and put together as shown.
  4. Stamp the sentiment 'Birthday Boy' as shown after fixing everything to the blank card.
