Masculine Card Pockets

Had a lot of fun combining some images from the Graphics Fairy into a masculine collage. Several men that needed thanked for being a part of a "miracle" in our lives and one that needed a birthday card.  I decided to make them assembly line style - mostly the same with only a few minor differences.
The above image combined a tag image, a background image, and the globe --- all from Graphics Fairy.   I added the text with my computer.
This tag has a Tim Holtz truck stamped on it.
This one uses the tag, the world, and a car from the Graphics Fairy.
The other supplies used were:
  • Dictionary Page
  • Pencil eraser
    • polka-dots on tag made by "stamping" with brown ink and a pencil top
  • Twine - Cotton Thread
  • Brown/Rust Cardstock
  • Eyelets
  • Black Staz-on ink
Here's the birthday envelope/tag card along with a loaf of banana bread....changed the sentiment on this one just a bit ----
One more pocket card --this time in a different color/style altogether.
I shaped the tag a little different on this one.
  • Blue/White cardstock
  • Blue Eyelts
  • Images from the Graphics Fairy
  • Cotton "twine"
  • Pencil top (to make the blue polka-dots)

    Neat-o. Sometimes it's hard to find male things. Girls are so easy. hehe. Love them all but the map one is my fav. Is that scrapbook paper? The world is awesome, too. Looks cool on the banana bread. I used that polka dot paper on a tag this week, too.

    I love that you made some masculine things. Sometimes I feel as if I all I end up making are girly type things. Thank you for the ideas.
