It's a Man Thing

With Father's Day being just around the corner a few challenges have a male theme to them.
I have made this card a few times before but with a football theme but this time I've used golf for the topper.  I'm  entering it into the challenges at

Paper Pretties Wednesday #312  a masculine card

Allsorts #261  for the guys

Sister Act #59  anything goes

The Pink Elephant #252  anything goes

613 Avenue Create
 #73  anything goes with an optional twist of metal

The background paper is an old and ancient one from K & Co and I put a strip of sequin waste on the left hand side and inked through it using a Brilliance ink pad, moonlight, to echo the dimples on the golf ball.  The topper is also from very old stash and is one of the first items to be produced by LOTV .  For the sentiment I used the Manphabet stamps from Little Claire with Memento ink pad and coloured them with Promarkers. The topper and the lettering were attached to the card with 3D foam


  1. Perfect guy card :) I love the design on Happy Birthday with balls and the inking of sequins is beautiful on the beautiful paper.

  2. Hi Margaret, I like how you inked the background to match the golf ball and the lettering is fab. Great mens card! The die you were asking about is called Small Circle Burst xx

  3. Thanks, Sue, for the comment and the info.
    Hope you are well
