Do you ever buy paper you love, really love, but never use? That's me and The Boyfriend collection from Cosmo Cricket. I love it I really do. I just have never used it. I think I've made one card. As I was cleaning up some things this weekend I was determined to break it out. It really is so cute.
I think the hardest thing with boy/man cards is that I like to layer, and usually layering is pretty girlie. I mean honestly I rarely make a card without ribbon. If I could put ribbon on a boy card I'd be set. Here it is, simple but I think I like it.
These colors are a little different than I'd normally put together. However there is something about the kinda off color combo that I really like. I think the white helps balance it all out.
Patterned Paper: Fitting In (Cosmo Cricket)
Cardstock: White (Gina K)
Thickers: Daiquiri (American Crafts)
Misc: Crystal Effects (Ranger); White Tread (Coats and Clark)
Thanks for all of your feedback concerning the tutorial! Hopefully I'll get that together very soon!
