Here comes the boys...

New weekly challenge over at Card Crafters Circle! They run from Friday to Friday.
And that's right we're all about our men this week (and not a flower in sight) :-)
This week our sponsor is the fab Digi Darlas.
Head over to their website for a nose... (click on their icon above)
I got 'Western 4' this week. Yeehaa! Here come the cowboys :-)
The card is made from 2 5x5 Kraftstax card from Papermania.
Take one of the 5x5 card and open it up. Score the left hand panel in half. Do the same on the right hand panel. Then score the furthest section on the right hand side in half again. (These folds are a breeze if you've the hougie board).
Take the first fold on the left hand panel and stick this to the inside of your first card.
From the side it'll look like this....
As you can see, the first card doesn't change at all. It's just the second card you do the work on.
What this means is you can do this with any matching two card blanks. Have a go and see what you can create :-)
Here's a closer image of those fab cowboy boots (I can hear Billy Ray Cyrus in the background!!)
The 'hey cowboy' is stamped from a brilliant set of individual letter stamps I picked up on ebay :-)
The papers are a mixture from my stash and for the embellishments well then I needed my Card Candi. If you've not heard of these they are faux brads and they do them in a range of brilliant colours. If you're buying on line then have a look a the link on the left for Art of Craft.
Another shot of the card from the side. This staggered card is great fun for decorating and stamps up pretty sturdy as long as you've a strong card base.
All the papers etc have been inked up with Tim Holtz 'Vintage Photo' ink pad.
If you notice the ribbon is stapled on which is great on men's cards.
Have some fun with your boys cards and who knows, maybe it'll be yours I stop by and leave a message for...
Happy crafting
