Just for You

ECD bagde

I’ve said this before, but I will say it again.  Making cards for men is really hard.  I mean really really hard.  My husband thinks my cards are cute and fun, but isn’t interested in getting one for a ‘holiday’, let alone just because.  However, Elizabeth Craft Designs recently released a whole line of dies that have really be designed for the men.  They are so masculine and simple, yet striking.

I pulled out the new Flying High die set to create this card.

  • Trim up some Cafe au Lait Soft Finished Cardstock to 6″x12″ and scored it in half to make the card frame.
  • Die cut Rick Black cardstock with Dashing Squares die set.  Adhere to card from with 10mm clear double sided adhesive.

  • Die cut Flying High die set out of 100 lb White Soft Finished Cardstock.  Add Weathered Wood distress ink to the edges and Pumice Stone distress ink to the plane.
  • Die cut with the Flying High circle die a circle from Dusky Sky Soft Finished Cardstock.  Blend some Stormy Sky distress ink around the edges.
  • Adhere the white die cut to the blue circle.  I used Glossy Accents.  Then using some 6mm clear double sided adhesive adhere the circle to the card frame

  • Die cut the sentiment from Words 2- Thinking of You in Dusky Sky Soft Finished Cardstock.  Adhere with liquid adhesive to the card frame.  Add shadows with a N4 copic marker.
  • Add nuvo clear drops around the card for a touch of texture.
