My Time to craft - Make it Manly

Why is it that cards for men seem much more of a challenge than anything else? I think that with all the pretty stuff that is available for cardmaking, we are drawn to that and the poor old chaps don't get as much!
This image is one of the Jolly Nation series, which I have coloured with Copics and cut out to put into a little relief.
The paper is from HOTP and the tiny footballs were punched out of a piece of backing paper from Cuddly Buddly.
I made the sentiment on the computer using a free downloaded football font called 'Bend It' ... no prizes for guessing where that name came from!
DO come over and join in the fun at MTTC this week, we'd love to see your cards!


  1. I find men really hard to make for but you've done such a lovely job.

  3. Fab card!! Love your paper and layout. I think I am the only person who likes to make male cards maybe it's because I have 3 boys and all nephews I do like to theme them to their hobbies which is always challenging. I will definatly be entering this week. Caroline x
