Cards for men!

My friend has a birthday coming up...he is actually a few months younger than me, but I joke that he looks a lot older than me, so I thought I would use this sentiment I came across... I tweeked and twiddled with it on the Pc to get the right size for my card. I used dovecraft papers and the vines are a cuttlebug diecut that I cut using my aunties dies a while ago. It made him smile anyway. (yes...he opened it early!)

My friend also has a foster child, well - he isn't a child anymore, I guess...cos he is just about to turn 16. I really find it hard to do male cards, but teenage boys are by far the worst. Hubby got me some papers and elements and i used lots of them to make this card. I have decoupaged the button and the 16 and have used glossy accents on them too, to make them really stand out. xx

Hi hun. LOVE these cards. The male card is amazing - I can never make cards for men (or teenagers for that matter!) and it looks ace. I may have to CASE it, if you don't mind!!? Love the papers for the teenage card. Brilliant, chick! xxx
