Boxing Barry Bear

Those of you who are regular visitors will know that I struggle with male cards.

Big time.

So when I was asked by a friend to make an 80th card for a male ex-boxer, I was stumped.

But I enlisted the help of the amazing Gerda from StampFairy who drew a whole set of images called Barry Boxer.  Well, considering that Barry is my favourite bear, I was so amazed at the images, that I had to use two of them.  I made a fancy shape card, and kept the embellies to a minimum as it was meant to be for a guy.  

My friend was really pleased with the card, and I hope you like it too.



Card Recipe:
  • Image - Barry Boxer from StampFairy
  • Sentiment - Typed text and Sizzix numbers
  • Colouring - Promarkers, Copics, Sakura Stardust Gel pens
  • From my stash -  Glossy Accents, Pearls

Please pop on over to StampFairy to see the newly released digi images.  There's a HALF PRICE sale on at the moment too, so stock up on your favourite images while the sale is still on.


Here's a preview of the set being released today:

    How lovely Annette! I think it's wonderful that you could get these stamps. I like to make cards that reflex the receiver's interests, not always easy to do, especially for a guy. I'm sure he'll love this!
