Need for Speed

Like a lot of people I don't find men's cards easy but I bought this set from Stampin Up called 'Need for Speed' to all I need now is a bit of inspiration.

Stamped and painted with SU soft Suede ink, backing papers are all from Stampin Up, cogs from SU punched (now retired) and I've also used one of my new dies Large Scallop edge which I think is nice.

Off to put another load in the washing machine....the joys of housework!!

Good Afternoon Anne, I really like the colours you have chosen especially for the car. That large scallop is very effective. Don't know about that naughty last word in your post. Crafty hugs. xx Flora

I like this Anne, one of your new stamps you were telling me about? Looks fantastic and I love to make male cards if I have the right things to work with. The colours and paper are fab in this design. Nice embossed background too. (I have just received on Friday car die cuts so am eager to try them out too)
Enjoy your 'ouch' house work...oh that word does hurt...luv annie x0x

They are always difficult ones Anne, I think we all struggle with them. But this one has a perfect image and ideal colours.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Great card Anne - didn't realise you'd bought this set as we got it for club??? The large scallop is very effective as are the colours you've used.

Great masculine card Anne - I find I stay away from cards for men cause I just do not know what to do. Love the design work and the colors.
