Men's cards

I found this great stamp set at Newbury, from a company new to me 'Acid Drops & Whatnots'

They specialise in stamps & decoupage with a witty, humorous twist - great for those tricky men's cards! 

This one is made with snippets from LOTV 'Country Gentleman' pad & HOTP 'Red Velvet', plus a bunch of black snippets for the die cut back layers ( I have a HUGE folder each of black & white snippets!)

My checks & stripes didn't quite meet in the middle on my A5 card blank, so I had to get creative with a long skinny snippet to join them up!

Shamelessly copied from the stamp co's samples on display at Newbury! Added red card candi to finish it off

Linking this one to Pixies Snippets Playground - off to climb the treehouse! 

Thanks for stopping by

  1. GREAT card Debs - and aren't Visible Image stamps such fun. I bought one for me and a different one for the Playground toy box (the bathing beauty that was just produced for a magazine a while back). I do love this one you used - says it all really :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. ahahahahahaha...I know a fellow who always says...I washed up for you honey!
    So I always say "I did the laundry for you honey" ahahahaha
    Thsi card is great...so funny and sometimes so true.

    Great use of your snippets...the long thin strip worked out great...looks like you planned it to be that way!

  3. This is so funny Debs. I love Mo's comment! I do much the same when someone moans about mowing the lawn...I offer the ironing instead. He mows!

  4. Ah Debs this card would work well for Annie's Friday Smiles... did chuckle.... great layout too thanks for popping over :)
