Celebrate Men Card

We have a fun new challenge for you this month over at Scrappy Frogs. The challenge, called Celebrate Men, is to make a masculine project and use two embellishments. Here is what I came up with.

My card base is white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" portrait style card. I added a dark turquoise mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then a black mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I embossed the black mat with the Argyle Sizzix Embossing Folder. The shirt was cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge at 3 1/2". I did not cut the face layer on the tie. I added some faux stitching to the tie and shirt color with a black gel pen and then added two small black nail heads for color buttons and a large clear rhinestone to the tie center to serve as a tie pin. The paper is from Echo Park.

I hope you will play along with us. Thanks for visiting.
