Male Swap

Cards for the men in our lives - is there any card more difficult to make? If there is, I haven't had to make one yet. I even find sympathy cards easier than male-themed cards. That is why I joined a swap with some SU demos - to gain some inspiration for cards for my husband, father, brothers-in-law, etc. This is my contribution to the swap.

The colours are Close to Cocoa (cardstock and DSP), Sage Shadow and Barely Banana. I really like this combination (off the SU Colour Coach of course). I stamped the background with the Sanded background stamp in Chocolate Chip to give some texture and interest. The shirt is made using the Dollar-Bill fold. I found the instructions here . I punched 1/4" circles for the buttons from Barely Banana. The shirt is mounted on Barely Banana using Sticky Strip and then onto Sage Shadow. The sentiment is from the For Father stamp set from the Summer Mini-Catalogue. It is stamped in Chocolate Chip on Sage Shadow.
I am really pleased with how this card turned out. I hope the other ladies in the swap agree.
