Hi Crafters,

As it was Hubby's Birthday yesterday I have a few of his cards to share with you that I had created for family members to give to him.
All are centred around his hobbies and interests.

Firstly I'd like to thank Sylvie for her inspirational card HERE that set the ideas rolling for my card.
As hubby is an avid this one seemed appropriate.

...a rear view using a 'Craftfairy' Stamp...

I love how these types of cards fold flat and fit in to a 6 x 6 inch envelope too.

Well your hubby sure is a jack of all trades isn't he. LOL The cards are fantastic. I am super impressed with the first one. Love the wood grain and all the fun tool die cuts. Great job on ALL his cards. Hugs!

Erika said...

What a fantastic selection of manly cards. The first one is amazing, loving all the tools against the wooden background.
The fish tank is fabulous too, just like ours except the fish eat all the plants.
The vintage motorbike is cool and the gardening one with matching dies is perfect for someone with green fingers.

I'm sure hubby will have loved them all.

Hugs Erika. x
