Ties for the modern man!

Jen and I had a debate yesterday, during our craft session, about whether or not I should use pink on ties, on a card, for a man. I said that men do wear pink ties, she thought it looked girly! I have, however, stamped a pink tie! I like it and Keiran's Dad used to wear pink ties all the time. Hmmm...maybe that's why it didn't work out... lol!

Anyway, here is the (offending) card! ;)

I used my newish Houndstooth and Stripes embossing folders for some texture, and cut the sentiment out using the small Framelit from the Apothecary Accents set for some shape.

Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade (retired), Bashful Blue (retiring)
Stamps - Best Dad Ever, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Inks - Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Bashful Blue, Night Of Navy
Framelits - Apothecary Accents
Embossing Folders - Stripes, Houndstooth

If you would like to order any of the products I have used, please do contact me and I would be happy to help. Alternatively, you could join my next Stampers 6 club starting in June...see here for more information, and please feel free to ask any questions!


I'm working again today, so I'm off now, but I hope your Sunday is a nice one, whatever you're doing! :)

  1. Great male card Lizy. I keep seeing that stamp set around and it always looks good. May have to get it yet. Love the embossing too, ideal for a male card.
