DCM's little extra - Oh Boy!!!

It's little extra time at Daring Card Makers
MEN!Let's face it, we all have to make them a card sometimes even though most of us find them tricky. We've been kind and not asked you to do a "male" card since Debbie's "ribbon for men" dare, but for this week's Little Extra that's what we'd like you to make - a card with a male in mind. Be it Baby boy, Little boy, Teenage Boy or BIG "boy" - just make him a card and let's see what you've done by leaving a message on this post. As usual some of the Design Team have made some cards to help get you thinking:
Congratulations to Esther for winning our first prize draw
at Daring Card Makers
Ok, so here is my take on the little extra for this week, pop on over and check out the DCM's blog and see what the other girls have come up with..
Masculine bits I used for this card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Design Originals PP - da Vinci, 7 Gypsies metal tab (turned over, as there was a word on the other side), 7 Gypsies metal photo turn, Making Memories fabric label - happy birthday, Catslife press stamp - this is a true story, Heidi Swapp Chipboard Clock face, brads, K&Company stickers to go - ricrac sticker, & my sewing machine.
Well now have you DARED to DARE Yet!.... Come on I DARE YOU

Tara said...

Wow, did you have anyone in mind when you made that card... it's just perfect for my hubby. Amazing!!!

Esther said...

Hey Gillian, what a lovely idea for a mans card, I think we all struggle, but this is fab! I like the fact it is not 'typical' man card and is quite modern, something that a bloke would appreciate. You have been so sweet and kind in leaving comments on my site, i wanted to ask permission to add you on my blogs I watch list. thanks Esther
