Hey Club!

This month I chose to do a 'guy' card for my project. I guess you could say that I am getting ready for Father's Day!!! I used Paul from the Greeting Farm. His skin is E 00, 21 and 51.His hair is E31, 33, 35, and 37. His shoes and shirt (peeking out) are E 35. Yep, all Es.  I used a piece of patterned papper by Recollections for his clothes. I made this a size A2 card out of Kraft card stock and cut it so it opens from top to bottom, not side to side. I used dark brown card stock for the largest mat at 4 by 5.25 and the pattern paper mat is from K&Co. and is cut at 3.75 by 5. I also used my corner rounder to round opposing corners for a different look. Then I took dark brown and dark cream cardstock to make the stripe going across the  patterened paper. I used some dark brown ribbon on it as well to add some detail. You know I had to embellish it somehow but no flowers on a 'guy' card! So, I used buttons, LOL. I pulled the colors from the K&Co. paper to tie it all together. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz's Purely Random stamp set. I know it looks like I had trouble stamping it (fuzzy) but that is how the stamp is. Or, how mine is at least. I stamped it multiple times and that is as clear as it got. I hope you like it.
