This project seems to fit with my unintentionally recurring theme this month: cards for men.
I put together the first new Plundered Pages card making kits with male-friendly cards in mind [and I'll be adding more today]. Also, last week I shared the card I made for James's birthday complete with a few ideas on embellishing cards with men in mind [ie. without frills + glittery bits].
And now today's card continues the idea [however, I've just realised that I'm contradicting myself as this card does indeed have glittery bits ... you probably shouldn't listen to anything I've got to say ...]. But if you're still listening ...
We had a notable anniversary round here this month, which called for an anniversary card:
It wasn't a wedding anniversary, [turns out you have to have had a wedding to have one of those ...] rather it marks the anniversary of our first official 'date'. Which was both a delightfully and incomprehensibly long time ago now:
And here are those aforementioned glittery bits ... along with an Idea-ology 'Trinket Pin':
In the interest of completeness: the 'Thank you for ...' sentiment is a Jillibean Soup 'Soup Label'; the large number card is by 7Gypsies and the sunshine design tag is from the Cosmo Cricket '2wenty Thr3e' Element Deck and I cut the heart from corrugated card using the X-Cut 'Homespun Heart' die..
And here, once again, is how it came together in the end:
Glittery bits aside ... I think it worked OK for a man's card.
And a rather special man at that.
If all this talk of dates and anniversaries has whetted your number-whistle, then you're welcome to join the growing band of My Month in Numbers bloggers this month. I'll be sharing my post on Thursday but you can join in any time.
