Over at Pear Tree Designs the challenge for this week is to make a card for a male.Click on the link to see what you could win from our sponsors One Stop Card Crafts (it’s a fabulous prize!) and take a peek at the fabulous DT work!

For this card I stamped ‘A Jolly Day Out’ by Mabel Lucie Atwell from The Artistic Stamper and coloured it with Promarkers.To add an aged feel I applied Antique Linen and Barn Door Distress Inks around the edges.The patterned paper is K & Co Hopscotch and the card is Papermania Textured.I’ve used Sizzix corner and bookplate dies.The greeting,from Farmyard Friends The Wobblers set,has had the same Distress Inks sponged around the edges.The background piece has been created using the Clockworks 5 x 7 Cuttlebug Embossing Folder,lightly sanded and gently rubbed over with Antique Linen Distress Ink.I created the embellishment with a piece of grey card shaded with a Promarker and an antique metal brad.All edges have had a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser used on them.This card is for my youngest son’s birthday.Although it’s not until September I have to get ahead as all the family love to send him a handmade card.Trouble is they ALL have to be made by ME!!
