Good morning folks and happy Monday!  Trying to stay cool here, how about you?  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Today I wanted to share a couple of masculine cards for the men.  I created the first card for my SIL’s birthday earlier this month.  And decided to go ahead and create several versions of the card in preparation for the October craft fair in Iowa.

The cards are real simple.  Paint splatters onto watercolor card stock, then stamped the tools in Staz-On ink.  Now that little wrench you see as the focal point on some of the cards, are those cheap thin wrenches that come in furniture kits and we seem to have quite a few of them.  I never throw them away (luckily) but really never use them again.  So they are PERFECT to use on cards and I’m glad I thought of it.

Like I mentioned, I made several versions.  On the next card, I decided to leave any metal tool embellishments off.  It just looked better:

Although I said I had quite a few of those “kit” tools, I decided to just use some screws on the next card.

I have to say that I had fun creating these cards and they came together really quickly!!  The great thing about these cards is that I can change the sentiment to Happy Father’s Day and voila, card for Dad!

Hope you have a great start to your week.  Until next time….. stay cool!

xoxo

    Just love your ingenuity!  These are very cool. Hope you are, too.  It's steamy here – muggy and rainy -UGH!
