Boys and Men Blog Hop ~ Freestyle Card


  If you are looking for the 50 States Blog Hop, please go HERE.

Welcome to the Boys and Men Blog Hop!  I am married and have 3 dirty, stinky boys!

If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING of the hop so you don't miss anything!  You should have come from TAMMY.



I designed my window card on my Gypsy.  I took a frame from Gypsy Wandering and put two of them on my mat at 4".  I used Hide Contour to hide the center of the frame on the left,
I took the bike rider from the Dude cartridge sized at 3.2 " and welded the shadow in the inside of the frame.

I put the three other layers on my mat at the same size.
I put my papers on the mat using mostly scraps.
Here they are all cut out.
I took a sponge and Vintage Photo ink (I like to call this color DIRT) and dirtied up my card base a bit.
I added a little hemp cord to the card.
I added "no guts, no glory" from Pink by Design Got Game stamps.
Here is the completed card.  When my oldest went to college, I used this cartridge (Dude) to make him some wall art.  You can see that project HERE.

I have a little "Boy-It-Down" blog candy!  These are some of my favorite things to use with masculine projects.  In order to qualify, you need to #1 be or become a follower or subscriber, #2 leave me a comment about a favorite boy in your life, and #3 leave me a way to contact you if you win!



Your next stop in the hop is MARIA.

KAT said...

my jaw dropped with the first view of this card. i can do this, but i see you have a copywrite. i'd like to 'lift' this if i may. very creative. i'm already a follower, and i can't say i have 'one' favorite boy in my life. i've had 4 boys, the latest being twins and they are 24 and one is getting married next month. so they're all my favs and very special to me. most of their freinds from school still call me mom too, so they're also on my favorite list. (they know it too)
