The Great Outdoors

Good Morning
This week's Challenge at 
Creative Inspirations
Male Creations...

The prize for the lucky winner is a 
£10 gift voucher from
Cult Pens
For todays DT card, I decided to use a digi I have used several times in the past for card commissions.  

It is absolutely perfect for those men in our lives who love the great outdoors and enjoy wandering here and there!

It is a lovely digi stamp from Little Claire called
Great Outdoors

I coloured the image with Copic markers and used Kraft card and papers from 
Kaisiercraft 'Outdoor Trail' collection to create mats and layers.  
The map is a piece I printed using the computer, and the sentiment is also printed 
using the font 'Apple Chancery'.  The sentiment could of course be varied to Father's Day for this week!

Finally I added some hessian ribbon, twine and a binoculars charm along with some punched dragonflies as embellishments.

Here we are, a gent's card for a true gent!

Wow Sue, what a wonderful card. As ever your eye for detail is spot on and that is a brilliant image for an outdoorsy type chap ( I do love his lunch box and flask). The binocular charm is a lovely addition and the map is clever girl you!! xx
