It's a Man's World!

 
 Hello my crafty friends!  It's Liz again with Liz's Paper Loft and  I'm thrilled to be a guest designer this week!  Crazy, huh!!! 
Today I wanted to make a masculine card.  I don't know about you, but I never have enough of them.  I used  my new cartridge, Suburbia!  This cartridge has so many masculine images, that it made it easy!  This is a great retro cartridge too!
 
 

After inking all my pieces, I cut a slit on the top layer of the typewriter to add the "paper" with "happy birthday to you" stamped on it.

 
I also added a some burlap and hemp for more texture.  Oh yeah, I managed to leave the glitter off this one! lol

Wonderful masculine card. Masculine cards are more difficult for me to make. My hubby likes tools so I use tool images in my cards for him.

Sue M. said...

WOW you sure did get the retro look with that card. Most of the men in my life are more into cars or trains or outdoorsy stuff and rarely wear suits except maybe to weddings! But must say you did a fabulous job with that man type card. Looks like a lot of work, but you made it look and seem so simple. Thank you for sharing.
