TGIF! And of course Fridays mean CAS-ual Fridays! This week we are going all out for men! Create a card or project with a masculine theme that uses patterned paper.

This week our wonderful sponsors are Gina K. Designs and we got the amazing and sooooooo appropriately named Casual Friday papers to play with!

These papers are gorgeous and the patterns are, well, so manly! I always love a few stripes, so combined the distressed yellow striped paper with some traditional masculine images and came up with this.


Not my usual eh? No white in sight! But even though this card doesn’t look like my normal style the same design elements are there just more grungy! You know one of the things I love most about this – that little knotted, frayed piece of twine – it came off a shop label! The shop is one of those trendy, surfy sort and the label was all distressed with this twine attaching it and I just thought it was perfect for this card. I do like a bit of recycling!

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I make more cards for females than males but the men in our life need a card too so I hope you can join us this week – lets show them some love! Here’s the rest of the crew in case you need a bit more inspiration:
