For the guys

In my cardmaking group one of the girls is getting ready to send another box of cards to a military group deployed overseas, so they can send cards home.  As we know there are a lot of women that deploy too and so I made some masculine cards so that they can send some to their family members.

This first one I could even see going to a girl, but it was meant as a guy card.



Silhouette Cameo - Bird on branch die cut
Tim Holtz - wood grain embossing folder, inked with Walnut stain distress ink
Gina K - Tag line sentiment stamp
PPD - A2 Stitched Banner set die


Recollections -- wooden leaves
DCWV - Travel scrapbook papers
Ki - metal accents
Deckle scissor


Recollections - Embossing folder
EK Success - Dragonfly punch
My favorite things - Happy Greetings die set
Foiled paper

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

All of these are such lovely cards. My favorite is the first, not only because of that sweet bird, but the woodgrain background looks totally realistic!

Lovely work. The first card is so nice with the tree. The second card looks great with the peach and white and your third card has nice bright elements.
