Manly Card Entry


(I apologize for the quality of the photo my other camera's battery died)

When making a card for Allison's weekly challenge, I decided to make sure I made something I needed in the near future. I'm sure you're all with me on the Father's Day thing. Anyway it's hard to capture a card that is my husband's style. He does graphic and web design, programming and is also the IT guy at work. He like video games and movies. Now when you see all of the stamp sets out there there aren't many that I think really apply to him.

Last week when we were in SLC he actually showed me these shrink stickers by Around the Block. He wanted me to buy the coordinating paper too. I know??? anyway I thought why not use them on his card. There aren't too many layers either because he is just a minimalist.

Paper: Basic Gray by Stampin' UP! and dp by K&co Amy Butler Lotus pack (I'm so in love with this paper!!!)
Stamps: Big Deal alpha by SU!
Stickers: Around the Block Gamer Shrinky Stickers
Ink: acrylic paint (just an experiment on opacity)

Loving this...my DH works in the industry as well (as a go-between for Engineering and Sales...not fun!). He has been playing the Wii lately and complaining that his arm hurts from the golf and tennis...ha! It is so hard to find stamps and cards that appeal to this kinda guy so I really appreciate your subject matter! Thanks for playing Erica!
