Some masculine cards

I was at Michaels this morning and saw this gorgeous paper pack –

P1050779webIt’s filled with grungy, old-fashioned papers — perfect for masculine cards!

First I made this one using Stand and Salute and some ribbon my daughter used to wrap a present for me a few years ago:

P1050778webThe, with the leftovers (I’m so pleased with myself for using them right away rather than putting them into my ever-growing stash!) I made this one, which is the reverse of both of the above papers:


In the middle, I used a leftover strip from the top card.  The boots are a stamp from Close to My Heart called A Journey.

The paper that looks like a ledger above had a very girly message on it, like So Very Sweet or something like that, but when it’s covered up, it’s all male! (especially with the muddy boot prints on it!)

I’ll add these to my collection of cards to send to Mike when he deploys.  If possible, I’d like to send him a note every week.  Paper is much better than email!
