Cards For Men

A very good morning my card for you today is one for the men. I know most find it difficult to make cards for men however i actually like making them. The challenge over on Cards For Men is no paper so this card fits the bill perfectly.

 I have used my new Papermania stamps for this card, stamped using brushed corduroy distress ink. I embosssed the blue card stock from THE PAPETERIE using swiss dots cuttlebug folder.


Punched edge was made using Zig Zag border punch by Martha Stewart, Stampin up thread and a basic grey button for effect. Card Candi for that finishing touch. Hope you like!

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges ~ 


I'll be back later with another Humphreys Corner creation for you using my freebies again.
One more sleep until the launch ....can't wait.

Thanks for stopping by

What a great card! I love that border (and you know I'm telling the truth because I used it on my card for this challenge!). The embossing is wonderful! I also love the inking around your vintage image. Thanks for playing along with our masculine challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. Hope to see you again soon.
