cas-ual fridays 54

TGIF! And of course Fridays mean CAS-ual Fridays! This week we are going all out for men! Create a card or project with a masculine theme that uses patterned paper.

This week our wonderful sponsors are Gina K. Designs and we got the amazing and sooooooo appropriately named Casual Friday papers to play with!

3 in logo- GKD


These papers are gorgeous and the patterns are, well, so manly! I always love a few stripes, so combined the distressed yellow striped paper with some traditional masculine images and came up with this.


Not my usual eh? No white in sight! But even though this card doesn't look like my normal style the same design elements are there just more grungy! You know one of the things I love most about this – that little knotted, frayed piece of twine – it came off a shop label! The shop is one of those trendy, surfy sort and the label was all distressed with this twine attaching it and I just thought it was perfect for this card. I do like a bit of recycling!

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I make more cards for females than males but the men in our life need a card too so I hope you can join us this week - lets show them some love! Here’s the rest of the crew in case you need a bit more inspiration:

I spotted the natural twine too, just the perfect embellishment :0)

Totally in love with this card. It's such a clean, simple, Debby card under those little distressed touches. The cord might be my favorite part -- way to recycle!

I love this card so much, Debby! All things nautical are a big hit with the men in my life, and the knotted twine adds the perfect bit of texture.

A-MAZ-ING, Debby! You are a crafty genius. I love it.

OMG! This design is simply sutnning, Debby! The twine finished with a nautical knot, the background you used for the ship... *gasp*

Even though it's not your normal, its still a very clean fresh card! I love this one. Wonder if I will ever stumble on a card you make that I don't like….:) don't think so. Beautiful!
