Masculine Cards...

Hello! Just a quick post today to show you a couple of masculine cards that I whipped up using scraps from my supply stash...

Fist off is a birthday card that I made by trimming up the background paper that was in a frame that I purchased. The background paper in the frame had images of three antique hardware pieces for a door, so I simply incorporated one of those images into the card. I tied a scrap piece of muslin into a decorative knot and included a piece of burlap paper, a piece of decorative paper and a tiny little key tied up with jute twine for added detail:

I used another one of the door hardware images from the background paper in the frame as a nice decorative element in this card as well. I used a piece of denim paper for the background, and then added some plaid paper, cardstock, burlap, a button and a key tied up with jute twine, and a clock image that I cut off of a box that held a clock that I recently bought. (Be sure to always look at the packaging of items that you just might be able to cut out the interesting images on the packaging to turn into a "trash-to-treasure" projects like I've done with these cards!)

Here's a close-up photo of the little sentiment tag that I made and attached to the burlap scrap and button tied with jute:

Thanks for dropping by today...the weekend is almost here!! :)
