Little Claire Weekly Blog Project - 'Made for Men' Card

Hi Heidi here, it's my turn to do the blog project this week.  I have made a very quick male themed card using the fabulous set 'Made for Men'. It is such a versatile set, with three large images and two sentiments included.  I have a card for a 'Brother' using the great sentiments 'Dictionary Definition's', all products used (except paper & Brushed Corduroy Inkpad) available from website Here .
Here is a list of products used:
'Made for Men' stamp set
'Dictionary Definitions' Sentiment stamp set
Green Bazzill cardstock
'Tori' - Melissa Frances Paper
Spellbinders Die Labels Twenty-Two
Tim Holtz 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink Pad
Moss/Ivory Baker's Twine
Six different sized buttons from stash
Ranger Glossy Accents
Memento 'Tuxedo Black' inkpad
Promarkers : Sandstone, Pastel Beige, Caramel, Burnt Umber & Ice Grey I
How to make the card :
(1) Cut the green cardstock to measure 10cm x 30cms, score at 10cm & 20cms, fold on scored edges.
(2) Cut three squares of paper measuring : 9.5 x 9.5cms each. Ink edges of green cardstock and paper with 'Brushed Corduroy'.

(3) Onto three white squares of cardstock, stamp out all three large images and cut out using Spellbinders die. On a smaller piece of white card, stamp out the 'Brother' image and ink all around as before.
(4) Colour in with Promarkers and ink edges with 'Brushed Corduroy' inkpad.
((5) Attach Moss/Ivory twine around two edges of stamped images and secure at reverse with double-sided tape.
(6) Attach buttons as shown, glossy accent images as shown.
(6) Stick down all three paper squares and attached sticky pads to each of the images and stick down onto green card.  Attach buttons.

We do hope you like the card featured today, please leave us a comment to let us know what you think of the stamp set and card.

One of the Design Team will be back next week with another project.
