I got fed up with making Christmas cards (I'm making them for workshops and Swarms so I need a constant supply of new cards!) so I took a break and made some everyday cards for my stash, and this is one of them. It's nice to make a guy's card every now and then if only to step outside your comfort zone and keep the old mojo going- mine's taken a hike at the moment and it's driving me nuts! I've started so many cards these last few days- got half-way then chucked 'em in a drawer because I can't think what to do next with them! MOJO, COME BAAAAACCKK!! I NEED YOU!!
Anyway, back to the card. I really like the autumnal colours in this card- quite appropriate for the time of year I think. I used DCWV papers from the Neutral stack, in a really simple layout. The heron was cut from textured cardstock and adhered to a shaped, embossed panel. I added some ribbon (yes, you can put ribbon a guy's card!) but instead of a bow I threaded a small piece under the ribbon and tied it in a knot. I added the sentiment, cut from brown cardstock and adhered flat, and a trio of Card Candi to finish.
