Dapper Gent

Morning all.
It's another busy week here in the craftroom but that's just how I like it!
Anyway here is my card for you to announce the start of a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This time our theme is -


Lots of things to get your teeth into there I think.
Here is my card using T is for Tie!

When I first saw the sketch at Less is More I immediately thought of a shirt and tie so away I went.

To create the 'tie', I used my Uniko Background Builders Christmas 2018 set, repeat stamping two of the strips across a panel of mid blue card in Blueprint Sketch DOx and Versa Colour white ink. I then trimmed it and turned the top 1/3rd 90' to create the knot effect. The white panels were cut to shape and added before being attached to an A6 top fold card.
My sentiment from HLS, Born to be Wild was stamped on a die cut banner and glued over the pinch point of my 'tie'. Voila a crisp white shirt and business tie, very dapper if I may say so!

So for more 'T' inspiration, check out the rest of the team here and then why not join us and prove making cards for guys isn't as difficult as you thought.

Joining in over at:-
