When I sort through my stash of cards, it's easy for me to find feminine looking cards but I always run into trouble when I need something masculine. I didn't realize how often I made cards with flowers! Today's card uses a stamp I have had for years - probably at least 7 years. It's not from Stampin' Up! but rather PSX. I love the detail on this image. This card is going to my son and he loves to golf so it was an easy choice.
I kept the embellishments to a minimum knowing the post office will charge me an arm and a leg if the card is more than 1/4" thick. In fact, I may already have a problem with the button I used, but I felt it really needed something. The button is from the Stampin' Up! Sherbet designer button pack which has a really nice variety of styles and sizes. If you look closely, the center of the button is not tied with thread or ribbon, but rather a thin piece of chocolate paper. It adds an unexpected element to the card.
It's a beautiful day today in Central Florida. I'm off to do my 3-mile walk with my friend and neighbor. Be sure to stop by tomorrow so I can show you the awesome surprise my husband gave me over the weekend!
