My new card

This card was inspired by Casu-ual-Fridays Challenge #9 to create something manly using Kraft...manly things...and kraft products are not really in abundance in my stash just my mental search started...creative mode turned on and BINGO the final go do it was that my Husband's Birthday is now in July and that was motivation enough to push myself and make one. (...and Virgina's tempting question to participate also helped, "big smile for that")
So here is what I came up kraft card stock or embellishments or paper for that matter so use what you do have...One Kraft box, one kraft paper bag, some yarn, my knots form the hardware store, some left over ribbon from a project and a 5X7 Brown Cardstock and some cutting and playing around.... (not the best photos, sorry but the camera won) I think you get the idea...I hope : )

I'll explain how I used them in a's just explain and show than writing a hundres steps LOL...

It is also the perfect size litlle bag to hold a gift card...YAY...I took the picture with the one I to get him his real one...and of coures it must match my card. I hope he likes it, since it is the first hand made card I make him...I mean real card just for him.
So I'll make that video...but now it's family time in the pool and it is soooo hot today that we seriously need it...Take care and come back soon, I love your visits and Happy Fourth if you are in the US.

PS: This is the video explainig it and you can see it better too,he,he please let me know what you think...I'm just starting out with the stamping and papercraft cards...Very different from my usual digital invitations...but loving it!

  5. Hi Evy.. I just wanted to stop by to thank you for your sweet comment that you left on my blog yet once again. I can ALWAYS count on my sweet Evy. You are just a super sweetheart. Thank you for being so wonderful to me!! You are so creative. One tip that I have is that when you do not have any crafty paper on hand I use cereal boxes (the plain inside of course) and if we get a 12 or 24 pack of soda then the inside of the box is usually plain and you can use that as well. Plus, it is good for the environment and it is being "green"!! Another tip that I have is.. you know when you get magazines from stores or any magazine really and they have those perfume paper samples inside? I take those perfume samples and put it under the last piece of paper on my card or scrapbook page and you can smell the scent of it. The smell is not strong but just enough to give it that something extra special. But.. Thank you for always visiting my blog and for being so amazing!! I always LOVE your projects and am off to comment on a few other posts of yours. Many hugs Evy..Terri of Two Pink Peas
