Manly Ferry

Well ok not quite but I dare say all Ferries have been anchored tonite – its blowing a gale here to say the least!

I’ve often said how I struggle with cards for those of the male variety but when I saw this gorgeous a la carte stamp Sail Away I just knew it would be perfect for many males and being an a la carte stamp and sold by itself its very affordable and suites any budget!

You simply do just need to add Ink & Cardstock!

Here’s a great super queasy card ….

I made this card for Mel’s workshop on the weekend and it really was put together in just a matter of minutes so you could whip one of these up while youre having a cuppa if need be – and your coffee wouldnt even go cold!

You could use this card for absolutely any occasion from ‘Thinking of You’ like I’ve done to birthday wishes or even a sympathy card.

Its simply just four different colours in Cardstock and some Linen Thread and your done!  The colours I’ve used are Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Confetti White Cardstocks.

What stamps do you always go for when making male cards?  and whats your favourite colour combination for those men folk?

ETA … Just thought I’d clarify the ‘Manly Ferry’ play on words for my International and ‘not so local’ blog visitors. In Sydney (where we live) there is a place called Manly and which is surrounded by beaches and a very popular holiday spot and tourist ‘must do’ and they have Ferries (water taxi’s) that go from one side of the harbour to the other and around circular quay.

    Love this card. I have made lots of male cards with the Voila set. As for colours, I probably use, blues, blacks or browns – different tones – with very vanilla. It’s a long time since I’ve even made any kind of card – sure hope I haven’t forgotten how to!

    I have this on my wish list Leonie (fingers crossed NEXT order). I love the simple but effective cards you can do with it. This one has gone in the CASE file!!! I love it…it is spectacular. As for my chappy cards….I tend to reach for Carte Postale or Lovely as a Tree. Palate…Autumn/neutrals. I posted one on my blog couple of days ago…LAAT…happy with that one.
    Fabbo card this one. So well done.
