Little Packages

I really dislike making cards for men because it means I have to deviate from my favourite pink and fussy style.

So it's a bit of a challenge to make a simple card that isn't too cute for a friend whose birthday is later this month.

Hmm, OK, so I think I may have failed in omitting something cute!

They don't come much more CAS than this card, but creating it was a bit more complicated.  I masked each element of the image to combine dinky 4 image stamps, 3 presents and the puppy.  I then added a sentiment stamp which is something I'm really bad at remembering to do.  I usually either miss off a sentiment, or only remember it when I have used up all the space with embellishments.  Well, not this time; it has pride of place!

I have the same problem - I love all things pink & yet I am outnumbered by men in my family! Beautiful clean and simple card - love it.

I loved him the first time I saw him, and he is even cuter now, if that is possible. But a manly cute so it's ok. Extreme CAS for you hun, but you have nailed it. Awesome artwork on that dinky image, not easy to pull off when they are that small but you cracked that too! Hugs xx

I know that sinking feeling when I have to do a male card but this is such a fab idea I may just have to 'borrow' it sometime!
I love the CAS style and how clever to merge those images together - it looks great :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
