It won't be long now and we will be totally engrossed in what to make for Father's Day!! Where does the time go.....winter is finally over and here we are talking about June already. In this post I'm simply going to share, with you, some of the parchment "MAN" cards I have made....oh, and I might just issue another challenge too, so read on to see what "might" be in store!! It's actually quite difficult to make anything for MEN in parchment....after all, the craft tends to be extremely feminine, delicate, lacy, etc....just exactly what we ladies love!!!
Now, as you can see, we have to be very careful NOT to make parchment MAN cards frilly!!!! The bottom left card looks like it might be close to "frilly", but the image used on this card offsets the dangerously close to "frilly" look of the grid border!! On three of these cards I have made the same grid border.....and I must admit, this is the grid border I use on the majority of my MAN cards/projects. On the other two cards, the image also offsets the grid border. So you see, parchment craft can indeed produce wonderful cards for the gentlemen in our lives.....they key is to keep them simple and to the point.......no frills!!!
Well now, here is the challenge I present to you with this post. There is still plenty of time to make your card for the holiday, so, using parchment paper and whatever parchment technique you choose, make a MAN card. It does not have to be for Father's Day (but can be!!) and it does not have to be for anyone particularly special.....simply make a MAN card and keep it as masculine as possible :)) When it is complete, please send it on to me and I will be very happy to add it to the "Guest Gallery" right here on my blog. Please don't think your work may not be 'good enough' to share with others right here........it most certainly IS, so put together this challenge.....send a photo/scan of your project and we will all enjoy and appreciate it together!!!!
