C4C – 449 Make it Masculine!

C4C - 449

Good Morning Crafty Friends!  The challenge for this week is to make a card for a male.  It does not say it HAS to be an adult male.  The youngest male in my family is my one and only male grandchild and he is 14!  He thinks he is grown up!  He is, however, a really sweet young man who, believe it or not, still loves to spend a weekend with his Grammy!

THE STEPS:

(Products I used and links are listed below at the end)

Step 1:  Create a base card by scoring a 8.5 x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Fold over for a book fold card.  Trim to 5 x 7″.

Step 2:  Cut a pc. of designer cardstock that measures 4.75 x 6.75″ and adhere to the front of the white base card, centering it for a 1/8″ border on all 4 sides.

Step 3:  Cut Suzanne Cannon “Happy Birthday” for Elizabeth Craft Designs. (Link at end) from silver mirror cardstock.

Step 4:  I used an older Karen Burniston’s die set (no longer available) called “Clock and Gears”.  I cut both gears from silver mirror cardstock.  I also used the little circles that are the negative pcs. that come out of the larger gear to add here and there.

Step 5:  Adhere the “Birthday” sentiment, gears and little circles as shown.  Here’s one more look:
