Cards for a Man

I just finished these two cards for our school secretary. She said her husband liked cars, and he is a construction worker. I couldn't decide what to do, so I made one of each.

This first card was made with the Everyday Paperdolls Cart. Then, I added the measuring tape ribbon at the bottom. I didn't add a greeting to this card because I don't know which card she will want. If she doesn't want this one, I will add it to my card file for later use. It is versatile and could be used for several different occasions.



This car was made with the Mickey cart. It took me a while to put together because of the dark colors and little pieces (and I can't see near as well as I did not so long ago). I don't know if you can tell or not, but I used shiny silver paper for the chrome pieces on the car and shiny black paper for the seat. I think these elements really makes it special. This card can also be used for several different occasions.



I really enjoyed my afternoon with these cards. I will most definitely have to make more like these because I am always needing cards, and those for a man are more difficult for me to make.

Have a great week,

Carol :)
