Hi There

Well sorry for not having posted for a while, I had a weeks holiday booked and then my router for my pc died. 2 weeks without internet access has seemed sooo long. What ever did we do before the internet????

Anyway I have still been crafting and would like to share with you a card I made for a Male 30th Birthday. I don't know about you but I find male cards very difficult.
This is a 8x8" card. I have used 2 shades of blue. The paler one, when stuck on was edged with my Martha Stewart dotty scallop punch. The darker card was then also edged with the same scalloped punch and then offset slightly. Using the same colours I then matted and layered the car topper. Using the darker cardstock I embossed it through my BigShot using  a Cogs and gears folder. This was then sanded back to reveal the embossing. I cut the greetings out on my Craft Robo and also the mat for the greeting. I added a cork paper 'gear' which was also cut on the big shot to the bottom right hand corner. A few black gems to finish it off. (A girl needs bling!)

Hope you enjoyed me sharing this card,

Happy Crafting
