I’ve been putting off posting one of these cards but today decided what the heck I’ll just post them both. I always struggle with guy cards since they really don’t appreciate all the flowers and bows etc. So here goes..the first one I made for my grandson-in-law, he’s been going to school to get a degree so he can work for the Forest Service and he’s and avid hunter.
I cut the log cabin, trees and mountain with my Silhouette…OH I also cut out the happy birthday. I used my Copics to color Walter the Moose which I think he is so adorable.
A quick view of the inside.
Now for card number two. This one was just sent off in the mail to our grandson who is turning 20 on the 6th. His folks just got him a new Redbone Hound puppy.
I used some of my dies to cut out the trees, clouds and grass. Then I went in search for a tool I’d bought many years ago and hadn’t used in about the same length of time. Once I found it I cut out of two different colors of green giving the effect (I hope) of rolling country side. I then ran it through to give it a crinkle look. Now for the dog….while looking on the Silhouette Store I found this wonderful shape of a hound dog and of course I had to buy it and then cut it out. I used some of my Prisma pencils to shade it a little.
A closer look at Edwin…..really Brandon and his dog Annie.
There you have it my two guys cards that I always stew over.
Now I thought I’d share one of my quilts that I’ve made for myself and plan on using it on our bed. I plan to enter it a a quilt show this summer.
It’s called Amish with a Twist II.
Thanks for stopping buy in your busy schedule. Always love hearing from you as it brightens my day and puts a smile on my face. Blessings to you all.
