Kaisercraft Art of Life Masculine Card

I wanted to make a birthday card, a manly birthday card, lol, for my other half.  You know the kind, the ones with no bling, no ribbon, no glitter, no flowers.  The masculine kind, sometimes, if you're not careful, the boring kind.  So I tried to come up with an idea for a 'manly' card that still had some zip and punch to it.  I used Spellbinders Labels Thirty-one die to cut the card base.  You do this by folding your cardstock and placing the long edge of the die slightly beyond the edge of the fold.  When cut you'll have 3 decorative edges and one folded edge to form your card base.

I used a combination of the Kaisercraft Art of Life 6x6 paper pad and 12x12 collection.  I cut the filmstrip from the paper and adhered it atop the decorative mat I cut with the labels die.  Then I used two of the domino numbers backed with medium weight chipboard.  I also used my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to add a little sparkle to the numbers, you gotta have just a little sparkle don't you???  

 I finished the card off with some Tim Holtz gears and sprockets

For my inside I cut another decorative mat with the labels die and trimmed the top portion that will nudge up to the fold.  I used a white gel pen to paint faux stitching around the outside edge.  On the Tim Holtz Journaling Tickets I stamped my sentiment with a extra small stamp that was included in a prize package I won from Tracy (Tracy's Treasures).  I joined the two tickets together with a teeny tiny paper clip (also Tim Holtz idea-ology). Everything was inked using Gathered Twig Distress Ink.

Patti this is fantastic. Male cards are so very difficult to do. I love this.

Wοuldn't it stand to reason that the dieter would quicκly regain the weіght once the dieter comes
off the strict dіet. Another good thing about the h - CG diet plan is that when your metabolism is reset, your body will keеp burning
fat caloriеs, even when ʏou stop the diet and return to eating
normal foods. Having a variety of foodѕ tߋ eat is helpful to
staying օn plan. When tɦe drops are taken suƄlingually, they are easily dissοlved and obtain absorbed
within a few minutes. Sincе thе time of its
creation, this weight loss program has helpeԁ milliοns of people аchiеve their goals
in the desired amount of time.
