We're going paperless at Cards for Men!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you - 'No Paper' (i.e. no designer paper). I know what you're thinking, I freaked at first but then calmed down and had a think! (n.b. card must be for a male).

Our sponsor this time is the fab store Kenny K. They are offering prizes to 3 lucky winners - 1st Prize - 3 digis, 2nd Prize - 2 digis & 3rd prize - 1 digi!!!


"I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey".

Please pop over to the CFM challenge blog to check out the details of our new challenge. As always the DT have made some wonderful cards, please do pop across and have a peek and have a go at the challenge while you're there. So onto my DT card, I have used a fabulous digi image by Kenny K called Cool Kid (what else?), you can purchase him here. I decided to go quite bold with my colours as they suit the image so well and minimalistic with the embellies...


Supplies:
Image - Cool Kid by Kenny K coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Kaisercraft rub-on
Cardstock - Bazzill
Buttons - Crafty Emma's Store
Card blank - Craftwork Cards
Tools - Oval Nestie die, star Cuttlebug dies, Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder, scissors for distressing, Martha Stewart photo corner punch

  4. Wow! Just been to look at Kenny K's designs, they are very funky!

    Love your design too, what a great idea to rip an embossed background, think I'll be pinching that idea! And great modern colours for a boy's card. x
