The Next Toughie....DONE!


Well you have to read today's blog post title in the style of Gordon Ramsay - as that's how I'm sayin' it! Yup I've finished the next toughie (aka a masculine card) required of me in record time!

But before I start babbling about the card - I have some fab news to share with y'all...yesterday I became an aunty AGAIN!! Aunty to 7 now including the new, healthy baby Charile who arrived yesterday morning! So I'll be making a nice card in tones of blue methinks but anyways back to TODAY'S card:

I figured I had a few days to mull this one over for Chris' dad but Chris kindly requested it at the last minute again last night so he could take it with him to his folks' today. So cue a mad rush to my crafting corner at 10.30pm! I decided to adopt the CAS approach to card making as well as the quick approach and I'm kinda happy with the result:Well simple by name and simple by nature for blokes I say LOL! It only took about 30mins and one cuppa to think up and decide on which colours to use etc. I think being tired really helped my decision process here - I was too tired to be indecisive!

Card Recipe
All PTI Supplies
Stamps: Star Prints
Ink: Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate
Card: Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist, Stampers Select White, Ripe Avocado Bitty Box Basics
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Dark Chocolate Twill Ribbon, White Gel Pen, Corner Rounder

On another note, I received positive feedback for my last masculine card - Matt said "It was good!" and that's real enthusiasm for an 18 year old isn't it? Wonder if I'll receive the same feedback for this card? Well it depends on when Chris' dad will receive it as in typical bloke style Chris has gone to his folks' and left this card on the bloomin' table! D'oh!

Catch ya later!

Edited to add: Just realised I could enter this for the CAS#28 Challenge over on SCS - to create a CAS Masculine Card. Am I psychic or what?! LOL!

Masculine cards are hard but you've done a good job on both of these Aimes! Not too fussy but not boring and still got a designer's touch!

Nice masculine card Aimes, I'm sure Chris' dad will love it when he eventually receives it!

Congratulations on becoming an Aunty again, I can't wait to see what card you make for baby Charlie.

Have a good evening.

Well Aimes, you know there were a few select words you missed off if it were to be in true Ramsay style!!! Congratulations on being auntie again, does it make you broody? My sister had a baby end of May this year and he is so gorgeous, just starting to smile and gurgle, for a few minutes i get broody but I soon snap out of it LOL!! Great 'man card', I agree that the simpler the better (cards that is, not men!!). Love Jane xx

Thanks for a quick idea for a masculine card to use for my nephew. I (like so many) struggle with making masculine cards - even my sentiment stamps seem feminine.
