Hurrah I hear you all shout today is the last of men's card week and yet this is the first one I made. Now I have to apologise for the poor photography on this one as it was made for a friend of my Mums and I had half an hour one morning to take the pictures so its natural light at 7am!
This is a trifold card made using a single sheet of slate grey A4 card stock. I started by cutting the three panels in black using Spellbinders Rectangles set B which I stamped using the Waltzing Mouse My Kind of Guy set in white embossing for the first and gold pigment ink for the next two.
The gold ink does not show well on the picture but in real life it shines (slightly)
The effect of the pinstripe is made by scoring the card at 1/2cm intervals then using a silver gel pen down each ridge. This gives a nice pinstripe effect I was trying to make the card stock look like suit fabric.
The sentiment is made using the same DoCrafts stamp from Wednesday this time in detail white embossing powder. I made this into a banner and attached it with a large button, again to match the suit 'feel'.
I made a simple box with a detachable lid for the card I was trying to get the look of an old fashioned cigarette case however I think I needed more time on this one.
Hopefully I have given everyone some inspiration for the men this week.
