Green Fingers........

Men's cards are always few and far between on blogs that I visit..even mine, I like flowers and ribbon too much and you can't put too much 'frippery' on men's cards can you?...but occasionally, for a change, I'll make a man's card as a challenge more than anything! There aren't too many Cricut cartridges out there that are 'male' related (Sports Mania, Handyman,Dude, Billionaire- PROVOCRAFT PLEASE TAKE NOTE!) and you have to trawl through other carts for something to adapt. I came up with card with elements from an unlikely source (see end of post). The base card is a pop-out stepper decorated with papers from the Dovecraft Woodland Folk A4 pack. I added some knotted 'manly' striped ribbon to the horizontal panel, a wheelbarrow,rake,watering can,garden tools,fence,grass and a handcut flowerpot with a sunflower. The sentiment panel is a piece of ripped cream card mounted onto brown card, bradded at the corners, and the sentiment was created with Cricut generated letters and 'Heidi' rub-ons. The sentiment panel was then adhered with foam pads to complete the card.
Carts used:
'Green'-Lyrical Letters
Sunflower stem-Just Because Cards
Grass & Fence-Paper Doll Dress Up
All other cuts-Everyday Paper Dolls
