I've got a lot of birthdays coming up in the next month so need to get busy.
The Male Room are asking for Spots and Stripes this time. I decided that was something I could work with and added zig-zags for good measure.
Here is my card:
The spots and stripes are embossed on black card and the zig-zags stamped in black with a Casual Fridays set which I got with male cards in mind but have not often used with much success. I edged them all with silver.
The sentiment is Paper Smooches. I decided to add a bit of wire which I had seen people do to great effect. No-one tells you how tricky it is to get the wire to stay put. It springs off in all directions.
The first day I gave up and went to bed. Next morning I manged to get a bit of tape on the spiralled wire while holding it down with both hands and a foot... Then it was manageable and just a case of deciding where to place it.
I'm pleased with this and it came together quickly so that is also a bonus. Still time to get it in the post too.
