This morning I bring cards that I have created just recently for the men in my life!
The theme for my grandson's birthday was a jungle one and this card is just right. The letters are stamped out using an alphabet from penny black, I have had it for a very long time, but is so useful as the focus point of a card. The little 'hugs' label is one from a collection by Little Claire.
I was in one of those well known stationary shops and saw the jungle toppers, I couldn't resist them ... Lion, Zebra and palm tree, there was also a Monkey he is inside :) and they just added the finishing touches.The stamps are from Stamping up.
These cards I really like. They are neat, clean and simple. The same but different! I have made them with a stamp that came free on the front of a magazine that you might have found in a craft shop a month or two ago.
The globe has been stamped with clear versa mark and embossed with a rust coloured embossing powder. I have cut it out and mounted it on sticky pads in front of a circular topper from Kanban. Happy Birthday has been die cut from dies that are available from Pink Frog. I think that they are very useful and come in a range of words ready for you to add to your cards. The cards have then nee finished off with raffia, safety pins, buttons and cogs from Tim Holtz.
I hope that I have inspired you to do some crafting this week end.... have a wonderful time.
