oh those difficult men's cards!

Like most I hate doing men's cards.  Decided for my son I would use Andy Carolan's Pastimes & Hobbies cd, knowing that he has a games box of some sort (no don't ask me I am not up on these things).  Hopefully this fits the bill..

I have chosen my favourite easel shape - though the topper is actual a whole card with an insert in it.  I prefer to do them this way.

The two backing papers (striped and dotty are from Daisy and Dandelion Patchwork Collection mounted on mirri board for the front, as well as the strip along the base.  I created the wording in Publisher, printed and then embossed the whole strip; mounted on another piece of mirrr and attached with brads coloured with promarkers.

Hope it makes him smile!
