It’s time for the half way challenge reminder at Digistamps4Joy and this time the challenge is For the Men in Our Lives. We’d like you to make a project for the man in your life, be it your father, husband, son or any male friend. You pick the occasion and we’d love to see what you come up with for it.
Seeing as how it was Father’s Day just recently, I decided to make a Father’s Day card for my hubby from my daughter (o.k…she decided for me lol) I used the image called Kudu Bull. Kudu’s are found in Eastern and Southern Africa. This image was drawn by our own Margy, owner of Digistamps4Joy and I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to use it.
The fold is called an Upright Z Fold card and you can find the tutorial for it here. I always like my cards to have a opening big enough to put a good sized sentiment in, so I attached a 5.5 inch card to the back. I coloured it using my Crayola pencil crayons and oms. The distressing around the image and sentiment on the front was done with Close to Chocolate by SU. The image and inside sentiment were cut out using my Scalloped Oval Nestibilities. I made the “flower” by following a tutorial that I found on my teammate Desire’s blog, Doing Life (thanks Desire)…you might want to head over there as she has a lot of wonderful tutorials to try.
The sentiment on the inside is one that I got off of Splitcoast Stampers.
Now it’s your turn to show us what you can do. Head on over to Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog and check out what the rest of my teammates on have made to inspire you. The challenge is until June 25th, and while you don’t have to use a Digistamps4Joy image, if you do you have a chance at winning the DT’s Choice prize which is a $10 gift voucher to spend in the store! While you’re there check out the rest of the rules and prizes to be won.
Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
