A {Dude, You Rock} Card...

Thursday, March 10, 2011

This past weekend we celebrated my brother's birthday.  I didn't make a card specifically for him, I just assumed I'd have an appropriate card in my stash.  Well, I quickly discovered that I don't have any cards for guys.  I ended up giving my brother a card that had hearts on it, HEARTS!  I wasn't there when he opened it, so I don't know if the hearts bothered him at all.  Hopefully the cash that was inside distracted him.  


So, today I made a card any guy would be happy to receive.  No flowers, no bows, no ruffles, no frills.  Plaid and flannel are really popular right now so when I saw the plaid patterned paper, I knew it would be perfect.
I added black enamel accents where the blue stripes intersect.  I really like the added interest, plus I added them to the sentiment panel and well.  I used a SU Mat Pack so I would have perfect spacing.  I distressed the edges of the kraft layer to give the card a little bit of a rustic feel.  My stash would be in good shape if I made about 15 more of these!


Thanks for taking the time to drop today.  Have a great day!
