Cards for Men

I found a new blog, Cards for Men, and decided this would be a perfect challenge blog for me since my stash is low on men's and boy's cards.  I followed the sketch except I made the card an A2 size (so much easier to mail) rather than square.  I'm  going to submit the card for the Design Team call and also for the My Sheri Crafts monochromatic challenge.

The stamp is a Changito which I heat embossed with Ranger Distress Embossing Powder.  I finished the card with some inking, two brads and some jute. It's a simple (definitely my style),  fun, silly card that a boy would enjoy receiving.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn
