This weeks challenge over on the UK Crafters thread on the Cricut MB was to make a card for men/boys and include a button or buttons. My first card is one that I made in October last year for the Addicted to Cardmaking swop on the Cricut MB. I thought I would show it as I did not put it on my blog at the time.
My second card, which is for the challenge, was a difficult one for me as I am not known for using dark colours. However, I found these paper, which were a freebie from CraftsBeautiful, when I was sorting out my craft cupboard and thought they would suit this card. I used a stamped image of Edwin that a friend gave to me and coloured him with a mix of pencils and Whispers Brush markers. Then I added glossy accents to the chair buttons and the handmade button. In the end I enjoyed making this card and am now going to make another one with the leftover paper.
