This is for the man of the house

This card was for one of the men in my life and with 5
grandsons there are a few of them.

This is the first card that I made after  I bought my eBosser.
Of course the first thing I had to do was try
out the embossing folders that came with it.
The background was one and the other is clock faces and 
I cut out one of these with a plain circle die and mounted it on
two tags from the Parisian Accents Spellbinder die.
I also cut out the square die from this set twice and linked them
together on the inside of the card but didn't take a photo of that.  Silly me.  
It is finished with black grosgrain ribbon and pearls.
They look very crooked but it is the effect of the embossing underneath.


Don't work too hard.

  3. I like this, it's simple but ever effective and great for a male card. You have to try out these new pieces of crafting equipment and you have made good use of the bits that came with it. Hazel xx
