Guy cards

I was in need of some guy cards, and found this cool manly card from Joan Bardee's blog. Check out her blog... I just bought some tall card envelopes and this layout and general color scheme was just what I needed. The top linen type patterned paper came a paper stack I bought from Michael's some time ago. The bottom light tan paper is from SU's double sided paper from last spring. The stamp set is Finest Flourishes and couldn't better for men cards. I used the chalk inks on this and the copper brads from Hodgepodge Hardware. For the envelope, I stamped in the tan and edged it with the chocolate brown and stamped! Looks cool IRL. I used some cording in between the patterned paper and the vanilla CS that is self-adhesive that I bought some time ago from QVC. I "Happy Birthday" -ed the bottom for the final touch.
I hope Joan would be proud...

Yes,I am proud and thrilled. You took my card, copied the idea, gave me credit (thanks!) but tweaked it and made it better. It's great card. I agree that Flourishes is a great man card set!!
