Retro Sketches #80 & Stampin’ Royalty #192

Hey Everyone

I’ve had a busy weekend with my niece’s baby shower yesterday and an Under 18s Football Grand Final this morning – our club lost 😦 – so I haven’t had much of a chance to play in my craft room.  I did however get a chance to make one card for this weeks Retro Sketch Challenge and the theme challenge at Stampin’ Royalty where the challenge is to make a project using patterned paper.


I know I’ve said this before, but I find man cards not as easy to make as female cards because I can’t tizz them up with bows, bling and flowers.   I thought the sketch at Retro Sketches would be perfect for a man card with all it’s banners and layers.  I’ve used some washi tape for the first time on my card and as I found my stapler, I was able to staple the ribbon around the grommet just for a different look.  Here’s my card:

RS80 & SR192

  1. Awesome! Love this card. Out of the flower zone and just as pretty! I really like this card….I will CAS this one! And it is mailable!!!!

  2. I agree that man cards are harder to make, so glad I found yours! I needed one and have this stamp set, but wanted a different look. Will be able to improvise to use what I have on hand, but love the layout! Thanks!
