Manly Monday

Welcome back to Manly Monday where I find masculine (boy, teenager, adult) cards to share with you. Masculine cards can be difficult to create and this will give you some inspiration. I have a ton of links for you  today. So grab a coffee or tea, sit back and enjoy the ride.

For some reason I couldn't save the photos for the following links. My computer has had an attitude lately and it better stop it or it's going to get replaced. I'm not sure what it was but please visit these blogs as well. You will not be disappointed.

For my "card" today I have a different product to share with you by The American Tag Co. This tag looking creation is an envelope that would be perfect to send to one of my nephews with a check or cash inside. It will fit into a business envelope for mailing and will be something different for them. Check out the last two photos.

To decorate my "card" I used a background stamp by Deep Red Stamps. You can find it HERE or HERE. I used Stampin Up brown ink for the stamp and distress ink by Ranger for the gears. I cut the gears out with my Cricut and the Indie Art cartridge. The tickets are by SEI, washi tape by Darice and word stickers by K and Co. The letter U is a Lifestyle Crafts alphabet die with Anna Griffin patterned paper that I ran through my Cuttlebug.

Thanks for joining us on Manly Monday. We look forward to seeing you next week.
