I do find man cards tricky to make. However, Stampin’ Up! have lots of lovely goodies that make the job a little easier and I am very pleased with my first SU card for a man.
The bunting is cut free-hand. Using the Polka Dot Parade in Marina Mist I’ve punched out 1″ squares, folded them in half to find the midway point and then cut them into triangles. The ribbons are 3/4″ strips which I’ve cut into. All the edges have been inked. I used a hot glue to stick the flags down and then added little blue buttons from my stash in between each piece.
I stamped the R onto Whisper white and punched it out using the 1″ circle punch. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount it onto the Scallop circle, punched from Sahara Sand, and then used more dimensionals to apply this to a square of Polka Dot Parade. All the pieces, including the bunting were edged with Early Espresso.
