So I started by making the gate fold card base then embossed front flaps only. Used SB EF. I then added the grey and Yellow scrap paper from my stash and also added a few black gems to opposite corners. Die cut a the white frame and cut grey card to fit inside the middle and stamped in black Momento ink the Poppies from Just Right Stamps, and attached this to one side of the front flaps. I decided it needed more pop so I added more black gems to frame it a bit and the little tiny white flowers and a tiny white bow (from Wal mart sewing section). Not sure how manly it is but there you have it. This going to card making friend, who is male, and is a retired art teacher and who makes wonderful cards also. The inside of the card says " You are in my garden of friends".
That's all I have for now. Still need to get my card for this week's challenge done, but I have been trying to organize my craft area and we all know how that can go, LOL. Wish me luck.
Until next time
Stay warm, where ever you are
