Boys to Men Card Class

Last night was our "Boys to Men" card class focusing on making cards for the boys and men in our lives.  

For this card, I borrowed a layout from Papercrafts Magazine and focused on a color scheme that could be used for a younger boy or teen. I used Crystal effects to create "mod" buttons and add dimension to the gifts

Paper - Holiday Lounge, To the Nines DSP, whisper white, black card stock.
Stamps - Happy Moments
Ink - Basic Black, sahara sand, ruby red
Accessories - Crystal effects, black brads, mat pack, Crop-A-Dile,  1/2" circle punch 

And for the men, we used the Nouveau Chic DSP, distressed edges and manly grommets

Paper - Nouveau Chic DSP, black, sage shadow, basic grey and whisper white card stock
Stamps - Well Scripted
Ink - basic black
Accessories - Jumbo pewter eyelets, silver brads, black ribbon, circle scissors plus, Crop-a-dile, mat pack, daubers
