Framie 5 card... A blank canvas for a boy's card

Boy cards are really hard to make, aren't they?  

I kept looking at this simple little easel card and thought it needed something more, but by adding the rotating sprocket gear embellishments and a little movable muse token to fiddle about with too, surely that's enough to keep a boy happy with this card!

The Framies 5 Blank Canvas stamp was embossed with silver embossing powder and cut out with the Nestabilities Labels 5 largest die.  The silver embossing really popped out when inked afterwards with the distress inks.

I used the follow stuff...

Nestabilities Labels 5 large die to cut the main shape and a smaller die for the wording piece
7 Gypsies paper pad in shop
Pewter metal swirls in shop

  1. Great masculine card, like the colours and the metal is just perfect! Love these frame stamps, they are so versatile.

  2. What a great card Jill. Looks perfect. Love those stamps. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Angela

  3. Great card for a boy, Jill! I think you've got the embellishments just right. Any boy would like it. But then, so would my son-in-law (aged 38!)as he's a keen cyclist.

  4. This is fabulous Jill, boys cards are SO hard to make, but give them a bit ofmetal to fiddle with and they'll be happy x
