Guy Cards

If you’re anything like me, you find guy cards difficult…just like guys, really, because they are hunters and generally approach life with a “see mastodon, kill mastodon, grill mastodon, eat mastodon” approach to life. The finer points of gathering flowers and cute little creatures and little embellishments are often lost on them. There are, however, exceptions to the rule, and my son Nick is one of them. He likes design, art, creativity. So there’s extra pressure to make him a card he appreciates. 

Here you go. A guy card that was super fun to make and looks (according to Nick, at least) great.

The square was die cut from a piece of watercolor paper I’d made with Twinkling H2O paints. The shimmer is lovely and works well with the gold embossing. The script embossing folder was used on a piece of watercolor paper cut from a large sheet (Arches 90lb) with a raw edge. The bit of gold thread sort of hugs the focal point. 

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
