Cards for some fella's

Good Morning Everyone. After a couple of warmer days, it feels and looks like it's back to the chill again this morning, quite a heavy frost and the lake to the back has frozen over again. Luckily I don't need to pop out until lunchtime.

Got on with two cards for males this morning as part of my mother-in-laws birthday card order for the year. These complete January and February as the others were for females, and I've got a good stock going of them.

This is for a Laurel & Hardy fan. The image is a decoupage, I've had this sheet sometime it also has Fred & Ginger and Charlie Chaplin images on it too. Mounted the deco image onto two film reel backing tablets from Kanban, as you can see the image was too big to mount onto one, so offset them. The corners and sentiment are peel-offs.

This one's for a Go-Karting teen. The image is a Dufex decoupage. The background is from Kanban. The orange/rust coloured leather effect card runs down the side with a red, amber and green brad with two other brads inbetween spelling 'GO', inked the edges with blue. The sentiment is a peel-off mounted onto the orange/rust card and inked the edges again.

It's so much easier making male cards when you have something to go on with regards to their likes and hobbies.

Have a good day all, hopefully be back later today with at least one challenge card.
