Man Cards

The Little Claire's club stamp set for March had a male theme. There was a further card idea supplied with the project card. This is my version of that further suggestion.
The base card for this card was 15 cm square. I then decided to do a larger version, 7.75 inches square for a friend's 50th Birthday.
I then decided to do a different colour version of the large card for my brother's 50th birthday.
In every case, I did each tile/square individually rather than stamp them all onto one large piece of card.

April Card Swap

The theme for the swap was create your own background paper. I made the blue handmade paper for the background about 2 years ago, recycling coloured paper handouts. The method was demonstrated on one of the TV craft programmes about the same time. General idea is to blitz the paper in an old liquidizer, mixed with water, then scoop out on a wire mesh, press between two nappy liners and then dry. The butterfly stamp and flower stamp is from Indigoblu and the background script is from the Marion Emberson range.
