Friends With Flair ~ Celebrate

Friday Friends With Flair time! WooHoo!

Come on over and join in on the fun! Just link up your Unity projects and/or skip along and comment on other projects that are linked up.

Does anyone else have a bit of trouble with having creative fun while making up cards for the gentlemen in their lives? I can make masculine cards...but I normally feel like I'm stifling my typical level of creativity to do so. 

Not with this one! This card is inspired by this pin here. I found that papers that are quite feminine when looked at as a whole, can be suitable for a masculine card when cut into smaller pieces!

The patterned cardstock that I used has flowers, butterflies and lots of soft colors, but when I cut it into smaller strips and accented the darker!

Between the sentiment banner, the buttons and twine and the popped-up patterned panels, there is lots of dimension on this card, so it will cost a bit more to mail. I'm so happy with how it turned out though, I'll probably be making several similar ones!

I kept the inside simple, since we need room to write the birthday wishes to the fil!
