Hello, Christine here today and I would like to share with you a card I made for a special man in my life…my Dad! I selected masculine colours and used Glitz French Kiss Papers and a Cardstock Sticker. Everything was assembled using the fantastic E-Z Dots® Permanent – it adheres everything perfectly.
I cut/embossed Spellbinders™ Jar Labels and added Foliage. The sentiment is a rub on that I found in my many drawers of forgotten stash! I also found this little wooden bird and again, used E-Z Dots® Permanent to attach him to a piece of paper to pop inside a Keepsake Envelope, these envelopes make such a nice finishing touch to projects.
A further shot of the card. I had to add a little heart too.
I used the following products to create my project:
Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I absolutely adore this card, it is so fantastic. I love the colours and everything about it is gorgeous. I will be trying to re-create this card for a male friend at Church who turns 70 next month. Thanks for sharing, I love all the male cards as it is so much harder to come up with ideas for men. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Lovely card, men are so difficult to make for, usually end up with some sort of sport but this is different and great.
