Are you like me, and have a hard time figuring out cards to give to the guys in your life? Well, Check out today’s two cards! They are SUPER easy, and super guy friendly!!
This truck screams GUY card to me! I don’t know about you! This would be perfect for the hubby or boyfriend or special someone in your life that loves trucks (doesn’t have to be a guy!!)
Now, this card is made from the Modville My Crush Book, like yesterdays cards! I just added it to a card base, and decided, after taking all the backing off of the foam tape, that I wanted to add some of the baker’s twine around the tire track on the right side. So, this is what I did. I wrapped it around 3 times, to figure out just how long it should be. Now, if you are familiar with the CTMH Baker’s twine, it has a thread of silver in it. Well, most guys aren’t all about that bling. . . . . so I just took it out of the twine before I re-wrapped and tied it into a knot on that right side.
Here you can see that twine just a bit closer! SUPER simple! There is NO stamping on the front of this card. (the inside is blank, at least for now!)
This next card, I don’t know if it is simpler or not, but it’s still GREAT for a guy! (or anyone, for that matter!)
As you can see, this comes from the same page in the Modville book, it’s that tire track that you saw on the right side of the truck card. I just cut the piece to fit onto my card base, stamped, and glued it directly to the card base (no foam tape on this one). No bling, no twine, super simple CAS (clean and simple) card! I love how the splatters on the tire tracks work perfectly with the grunginess of the stamp set!
So, tell me, which do you think is the more ‘simple’ card to make? The truck with no stamping, but twine added or the happy birthday stamped card?
The June special ends at the end of June, so make sure to take part! When you purchase the My Crush book and matching assortment you will get the coordinating stamp set for free!
