What a strange old day here. Lots of wind and rain this morning and now less wind and lots of sunshine...
Today's card features my favourite bear...the wonderful Wellington! I've made this card using a kit I bought (Docrafts) some time ago, but it's only the third card I've made with it as I love it so much and didn't want to use it...but now I have the CD! Woohoo!!! So there'll be lots of cards featuring Wellington around now. And if you don't yet have the Docrafts Wellington CDs...you neeeeeed them! They are absolutely fantastic and I'm so glad theirs a CD included for the laydeez!
Today's card, though, is one for the boys! Mens' cards are notoriously difficult to design but now they're so easy because Wellington is absolutely perfect for everybody, whatever their age or interests. I'd even give a Wellington card to the hardest hard man in Hard Man County! Lol. He's just fab.
I've used a 6 x 6 (approx) Kraft card base for this one, and have used one of my favourite layouts. There's quite a bit of matting and layering but it's so simple and so effective, and I just think that it works well with mens' cards in particular.
I've used dark brown Co'ordinations card for the matting (ooh, get me!) and all the papers and elements are from the kit. The inside is decorated to match.
I've finished off with just two brown buttons from my stash.
I've not forgotten the tutorial for the open book cards...shall do it as soon as I can.
Take care everyone.
