Make a Card Monday - Relaxin'
As I mentioned last month, a friend gave me some new paper to work with. I spent a long time cutting out circles to make the background for my man birthday cards this year. It was worth it though... I think it turned out pretty well. The black/yellow/gray color combo is not something I've done a lot with before. I really searched for the perfect image for these cards. I liked the chair a lot but there was a vase of flowers sitting on the arm and a sentiment below it. I didn't think the flowers helped the manliness of the card so I did a little stamp surgery. I carefully cut of the vase and the sentiment and then used the chopped image.
