TMR - Theme ...

.... Good afternoon! I knew it was too good to last - I'm running late with my DT card for our new challenge over at The Male Room - TMR#43. We have a theme for you to use on your masculine projects - we want to see


You can interpret it any way you like, but your project must be masculine. I actually ended up making two cards!! Here they are:

Dies: Die-namics - Wonky Stitched Circles #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Kanban Toppers - Apple Beat, Adhesive Ribbons

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Dandelion Dreams
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Cajun Craze
Dies: Cas-ual Friday Stamps - Treble Clef
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Kanban Toppers - All That Jazz, Adhesive Ribbons; Wink of Stella - Clear

I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to use up some of my large vast collection of toppers from Kanban Card.

The first card has a 1960s feel and is based on this week's layout from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#252 - it just seemed to work perfectly with the simple images. I cut the main Beatles image using a stitched die so I'm also going to submit to CASology - CAS#213 where the cue word is Stitch. I used some self-adhesive ribbon from Kanban that looks like the frets on a guitar and edged the bottom of the card. I adhered the picture image and the little apple circle flat to the card. I used dimensional tape to attached the two small birthday circles. I finished the front with a greeting from the same topper sheet. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel added some more of the self-adhesive ribbon, a little road sign and a greeting.

The second card has a more 1920s feel with a Jazz theme. Once again I used self-adhesive ribbon to edge the top and bottom of the card. I layered the image and birthday greeting on black card and adhered them to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel added a simple greeting and a sparkly treble clef! I'm submitting this card to City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB#327 where they want to see Birthday Wishes.

Wow! Two very different but equally amazing cards. Being a girl of the 60s the Beatles one really has strong appeal and I love its funky style.

Fabulous cards Deborah both so different, but so VERY effective.

I loved the Beatles and my father used to tell me off for screaming in front of the TV when they came on LOL.
