Sisterhood of the Travelling Cards ~ May/June theme



    Hello Everyone in blogland ,
this is the recent handcrafted project for the SOTC group. 
Gael was the hostess for May/June months and she specifically didn't want any 
stereotypical man's card.
I hope I did it right!

Here's the theme in her own words:

~MAY/JUNE Theme hosted by Mamadwawa~
Have you ever noticed that the majority of masculine-labeled cards are either football/baseball, hunting/fishing, golf, tools, Nascar? Not one of those themes would be appropriate for The Man in my house. Therefore, your challenge is to create a man's card that has NONE of those stereotypical things that first spring to mind. Also, you must use at least one non-earth tone somewhere on your card. (In other words, something bright)



 For these cards I used a Stampandous clear stamp : Cling Typewriter Note CRP158 ,
embossing folder 'houndstooth', designer paper from Kaiser 'Devonshire Collections',
orange/white candyfloss and matching buttons. Cut out image is prompted up w/dimentionals.
Card stock ,sentiment and punch are from SU.
                                       Tecniques used here : dry embossing and fussy cutting.

                Well, what do you think? Bright enough? eheeh  :o)
                     Hopefully the SOTC gals will like them.
                   Thank you for stopping by my friends! 
                         ♥ Have a great and blessed day! ♥

Gah!! I absolutely LOVE THIS!! What a beauty! The colors, the design, the fabulous contrast of the typewriter, swoon! I still have my dad's (working!) typewriter, a relic but it's a magnificent machine, especially for writing for fun :) I just love this, sure hope one falls into my return envie! ♥
