Men's Card "Cross my heart and hope to FLY"

This card was made at our Stamp Club meet up this month. I love our little get togethers as they are fun, idea sharing & every month one of us gets the freebies as a host.

This way, we get a great cross section of stamps, colours, dies, embossing... the list goes on & on.

I used the "Tags #3" (2915) for the label (black card stock), I "stamp dyed" the wide striped navy & white ribbon plus a tied checkered black & white thinner ribbon on the tag, vanilla card stock & a fine nibbed art pen for the roughly drawn lines around the outer edge. I enjoy coming up with "male themed cards" it's a good challenge if you get bored with the flowers & lace of female cards. Let's face it, if you make cards a lot.... then you most probably have tons on female cards.... more than you have to give to friends & family for a
