Lots More Adventure Bound Cards for Men



Following on from my 3 earlier Adventure Bound posts at the beginning of the week... they were 3 from a pic n mix selection of 12 cards available to make in classes this month... Well you know what cards for men are like...certain themes suit certain men...and others don't..so great to have a selection to choose from....
So here is a quick round up of the other cards for the menfolk focusing on using the Adventure Bound paper stack  which is only available for 3 more days – so I thought I had better share these quickly! Please don’t miss this great paper stack…it is just SO right for men’s cards…. Also featuring the Guy Greetings stamp set. These cards were all made at our last Team Quarterly Training - so thank you Julie Kettlewell for these makes...love them! We all did….. Warning….very picture heavy post…..
First up …. this card caused a stir in one of my classes… I can’t possibly say why without this post being blocked by the porno police…but there was much girlie laughing for ages… and so I had to think on my feet and quickly make a new version from the bits in the card kit...I think only 1 lady could make it as the original!! With a strange grin on her face… LOL!

And here was the alternative… though I have to admit that the greetings were added just this week – well I did tell you that I am going to use this NEW Happy Birthday Everyone hostess stamp set on everything!!

Oh look I actually made 3…. DAD at training… then I tried the GRANDPA one with the cut away around the collar – and then the on-the-spot one without the tie… I love all 3….
047 Second up the - all round favourite using the Circle Card Thinlits die. This die just does it’s job so well - it produces a fab looking but SO simple to make Fancy Fold card! I was told off for not featuring this die before…must dig out all those Christmas cards we made when it first came out!!! I think a few of you must have been away for that class?

And finally the Football card… great make with the Hexagon Punch…. always useful to have one of these in your stash – suitable for men and boy’s of all ages…. Wish I had found the time to make the Rugby Ball one I was going to make though…maybe one day…..

PS I don't think these photos will be pinnable...strange things are happening in the blogging world.. I won't bore you with the details... but there is quite a few workarounds going on to achieve blog posts at the moment.... very frustrating needless to say.....
