Every so often we are asked to make cards for a man and if you are like me with all the frilly stuff then it is not a task you relish
But Spellbinders have brought out some dies that can maybe help you with that style of card and they are part of the Trendy and Simple Collection
This particular one is called Glass Effects and it is very abstract. I am showing you two cards and how not to waste anything from your card
For this card I have used blue Adorable Scorable and teamed it with white.
I have cut the die out just as it is but I have removed the main part of it very carefully so that all the small pieces stay in place in the die. (Keep this safe for the next card)
Then I covered all the pieces with some double sided adhesive sheet. Remove the backing from one side only and pressed it on to the pieces.
I made sure that they are all stuck to the sheet ... then again carefully remove it from the die with all the pieces now stuck to it
In between all the small pieces I have added some really silvery glitter and pressed it onto all the sticky lines ... then all you need to do is layer it up and add it to your card front.
The word is cut from Sentiments 5 and hey presto a card suitable for a man.
I have added in a Conversation Bubble 1 and added in the word from Sentiments 3
And there you have two cards and nothing is wasted and both manly enough to give ... to a man !!
More tomorrow ...
