Larry and I have a close friend that is undergoing some health issues presently and I wanted to send him a card. It was a bit of a challenge for me, I think I have only made one other masculine card…ever!
So Phil this is what I made with you in mind, you should be getting it in a couple of days.
I was a little skeptical using the Scallop Circle Die for a guy’s card, I tend to think of butterflies and flowers with scallops. Now Larry on the other hand he thinks of CLAMS and FISH. *smile* But I think with the addition of the twine, the tree and using earth tones I accomplished my task.
I used copics for the coloring of the tree. Then stenciled the edges before removing the spellbinder die.
For the sentiment I used First Edition DSP, used scallop circles #2 die, attached a button, distressed the edges and simply added his name with my white gel pen. Nothing to girly here!
