Hello, friends! Can you believe May is almost over? Crazy, right? The good news is that the end of the month means another 12 Kits of Occasions post. Our hostess, Jeanne, sent an all boy themed kit. It was awesome. (Many thanks, Jeanne!) I struggle with masculine cards, so it was great to have everything picked out for me. Who would have thought there were so many masculine embellishments?! Make sure to check out all the details of the kit and the other 12 Kits designers' cards here on the 12 Kits of Occasions blog. And we have two guest designers this month, so there is even more to enjoy!
This next card is for my brother-in-law. He is an outdoorsman, and he happens to have a birthday in a couple weeks. This deer Jeanne included could not have been more perfect. The little orange strip was a scrap. It's the backside of the the navy blue chevron paper that I trimmed off to make the card a tad smaller, and I love the little pop of color it added.
This next one goes to my father-in-law. I thought I was so clever thinking to hang the tools on the cork paper until I looked at our 12 Kits post and saw that my teammate Marybeth did the same thing. :) I fussed and fiddled with this card for a couple days. I'm not sure why.
The inside was one of the most time-consuming parts. I bought this Lawn Fawn alphabet for times just like this, so I could create my own sentiments, but it did take me quite some time to line up each of those letters. Michele is the queen of good puns, and I totally thought of her while making this card.
Well, that's it for me today. I barely scratched the surface with this fabulous kit. So many ideas, so little time. Since my post is short(ish), you should have plenty of time to check out how everyone else used the kit, so head here next! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
