Man Card

Hello to all my blogging friends!!  There are some new followers out there and I want to say a special "hi" to all you guys! :)

I don't have a challenge to post today, just a card to share.

I have a male friend with a birthday coming up next month.  I don't know about you, but male cards are the most challenging to me. This particular friend is really into golf, so here is the card I came up with for him.


 The golf tee is from Everyday Paper dolls, the golf ball is a 3" circle that been ran through the swiss dots cuttlebug folder and mounted with pop dots upside down (swiss dots facing the paper, not out) and then inked with brown and black ink.  I used a computer generated sentiment.


The back ground paper is clouds on top and grass on the bottom.  In this picture you can barely see that I ripped the grass bg twice, once for the hillside and once for the tee to layer into the rough grasses.  I then pop dotted the top layer of grass only.


I did add some brads to the top right also.  I matted the whole thing onto a slate gray/blue card stock and then added the navy blue card stock base.


Thanks so much for visiting me here at CardsbyCG.blogspot.com.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
