Midway with the Belles.

Well can you believe it we are halfway through Septembers challenge at Unstampabelles. The challenge is to make a card for the males in your life. Not at favourite I thought but I was wrong we have had some amazing entries so far this month.

This is my midway inspiration for you.

This was a project we did at with my craft group and the idea came from my co leader, Terri. She challenged us to use corrugated card in our creation and also provided the waistcoat template. This is what I made. The turquoise card base was from a Lidl's pad and the design paper was a wall paper sample that I sent away for eons ago!! I cut out small pieces of the 'background' paper to make pockets, a handkerchief and buttons. I also used it to line the waistcoat. Finally I added a gold corner peel off and a peel off sentiment 'Its your day'.

We are also looking for you to journal about your idea of a perfect male card. I definitely used KISS  here don't you think. The colour of the waistcoat is more male too and the corrugated card I think looks like corduroy. So all elements for a male card and defo not girly!!

Pop over to Unstampabelles (link in sidebar) and see what the rest of the team have to inspire won't be disappointed. There are some lovely decoupage sheets and toppers to be won. Kindly donated by Susan.
