Morning all.
This week at Cardz4Guyz we would like to see your male orientated projects on the theme of -


Here is my card for your inspiration.

I was a little stumped again but it's sometimes a good thing to be stretched and think outside the box.
I'd been surfing looking for inspiration for another card when I came across a link to this project.
I don't have a Silhouette to cut the Argyll pattern or a die to cut the bow tie but I thought it would fit this challenge perfectly.
I used a small square from my nested dies and cut the holes from a strip of cream card the used it again to cut some coloured squares from DP scraps. The tie was a little tricky but I played around with some scrap paper and made a template before cutting it out, same for the V neck and shirt. I inked the edges of the sweater (Texured Bazzil) and coloured components, before assembling on a cream base card. The button was from the huge stash, but it always takes time to find the right one!

Now it's over to you. For more inspiration nip back and check out the rest of the DT's work and join us.
