Humourous Cards for the men

As it is my brother and my brother-in-law’s birthdays within a day of each other, I decided that they would get the same card this year. I had found a great verse for grumpy men that I got from Joanna Sheen’s newsletter and decided that I would make a humourous card and use that verse.

I used La Pasche’s A5 Stamps Set Flippin’ Men Peace as I thought that this would appeal to both of them and I liked the idea of having a back and front.

I coloured the front and back images using Copic Pens and then cut them out and mounted them on to acetate.

I then cut out an aperture with Spellbinders Labels 8 on an A4 card and then also cut out another one on an A5 piece of card so that I could mount on the back of the front leaf to hide where I had mounted the acetate, making sure that they matched up when put together.

I then stamped the border of toilet rolls, also from the stamp set, down the left and right hand side in Versafine Sepia and also stamped the greeting  in sepia and mounted this onto the card.

I attached the insert with the grumpy men verse to add to the humourous theme.

I am hoping that they both enjoy the humour in these cards and they are a little different to what they normally get.
