My cat therapy

As I recover from my total knee replacement only 10 days ago, Matza got snugly with me. She did not like the photo op interruption during our special time. She is such a furry sweetheart.

Diva's Swapping Masculine Cards



At our recent Diva downline meeting I was not able to be there due to my knee replacement, I did get a swap done ahead of time. I am not sure how I had the energy nor the time but I did it. The shoebox swap theme was "masculine". Having just participated in a masculine swap at Convention I was happy to do so.  Never have enough male ideas,  that goes for cards and scrapbook pages, and other handmade or gift ideas. 

I had wanted to use this set for the swap: Horse Frontier 132019 w 126347 c. Partly because I like the set and have yet used it and partly because not all guys are tool loving motorheads. Am I right? I know for my own sweetheart it could just be more masculine colors, or a nice nature theme. There are many ways to go masculine, and I wanted to try this out.

Next for colors. I wanted to use Cajun Craze, partly because it has fallen off my radar and partly because I think it suits the card theme. I used my color coach to find coordinating colors. Crushed Curry was a choice. I tried to work it into my card as either cardstock or ink, but neither were working out. I do have the Crushed Curry Chevron ribbon, 130019, a ha! I can work that in. 

Now knowing me I like to add an embossing folder to each project. Try and stop me!!! I chose the houndstooth, as I thought it looked nice with the horse without being overly masculine nor feminine.  

Because the card had only one ink used and simple cuts, I was able to whip out 18 of them in about 1.5 hours for all the work. True Confession: I CASE'd the card from the masculine Convention swap some. Same basic layout. I like the layout. Plus the card is fairly flat for mailing. 

Other dimensions:

houndstooth piece: 4 1/4 x 2 1/2
Very Vanilla base piece: 3 x 4 (I think)
Cajun Craze layer piece: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4
Very Vanilla stamped piece: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2

I may have to use this layout for other projects. It is simple and quick and still looks fresh and modern in style.
