Anything Goes at Cardz 4 Guyz

We've got an easy theme for you at Cardz 4 Guys this week - Anything Goes. Although don't forget it still has to be suitable for a man or boy!

Now I don't really associate my Glitter Girls embossing boards with masculine cards - when they used to appear together on TV, the Glitter Girls made everything very girly and sparkly. However Valentine's Day is only three weeks away so we're all on the lookout for ideas to make romantic cards to be sent to men. So I decided to try to make something masculine using the Mini Boox board. When I bought the board, it came with a pack of die cuts, some of which were vintage male designs, and I teamed these with some pearlescent copper card to make the hear shaped book card. I backed each of the pages with a cream heart, created with the board, to give the sender somewhere to write their greeting.

As the finished card is a non-standard size, I made a matching envelope from pearlescent paper and one of the remaining die cuts.
