Day 8

So today I made what I think is a really cute, masculine card. Is there such a thing? There were lots of examples for today's cards - using labels stamps. I actually cut the whole inside out of this stamp. It was some kind of camp list -  not ever going to use it that way, I don't think, and besides I kept the inside so I could use it it I wanted to! I loved the card that opened where the label was (Lisa Spangler who works for Hero Arts and is one of my fav designers), but I didn't want to copy it. Then it hit me! I didn't have any stamps to say what I wanted to say, but I knew I had little letter stickers. Somewhere along the way, someone was using those cutterbee tweezers and I just had to have them! I could not have placed all those letters without them! They are like having an extra pair of hands! I used them to knot my twine also.
There is a little piece of washi tape making a tab to open the little door. The greeting is on dimensionals and of course, no male card would be complete without a button!
Did you guess what was inside the little door? Now don't you think its the cutest?!!!!!!! You are looking at the entire card. There is no "inside". It wasn't even hard to cut the opening since I had the stamp to guide where to cut. Thanks for your support! It means so much to me to get your feedback. At least I know I am going the right way down the path!!! Hugs to you all, Barb F
