Create with Connie & Mary #216 & Mojo Monday #256

Hey Everyone

My brother-in-law has recently had a birthday so I’ve created this card using a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Grunge Rock (it was the first time it had been inked up!).  I’ve used the challenge colours from Create with Connie & Mary  to create this card – initially I thought they might be too girlie but I found I really like them for a man card.

I’ve combined challenges as I needed a little inspiration for the layout for my card so I found this sketch from Mojo Monday.  I find creating a man card a bit tricky sometimes as I run out of embellishments to add. When I find a fabulous sketch like this, it gives me the “fullness” I need on a card – does that make sense?

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. What a fun card and GREAT for a teen boy! MY…the patience to layer all those banners! Looks fabulous! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  2. Oh, those pesky man cards! They’re always so difficult! I love all these gorgeous layers and the images are great! So glad you inked up this stamp and shared it with us at Create With Connie and Mary!
