For the Boys is our challenge theme at Creative Knockouts and our fabulous sponsor is none other than Dr. Digi's House of Stamps! They have a huge variety of manly images and for my creation I picked BBQ Bill.
When I first started making cards, my forte was masculine cards. My boys were young so I was just focused on card making for them and their buddies. I found it really difficult to transition into making feminine cards, I actually hated it - all the sparkle and fluff (tee hee). Now it seems I don't make many masculine cards and I had so much fun making this one.
I colored Bill and his BBQ with Copic markers and decided to try my hand at a double easel card. It took a few tries to get the measurements right and overall I'm happy with the turnout. I was having some issues with it standing on it's own so I decided to use twine to keep it standing (see below).
What's nice about this fold is it's compact and can be mailed in a regular sized card envelope. There are a few things I would adjust but that's for another time!
I hope you are able to join us and enter your creation here for a chance to win 2 digis of your choice!
