Distressed Male

I always have problems coming up with ideas for male cards, so I was really surprised when the idea I had for the sketch challenge over at Allsorts was for a card for a teen aged boy.

I started with a pale blue card blank and added some black c'oridinations card, some scraps of white card and a couple of buttons. I have used two different embossing folders on my white scraps and coloured them with Broken China distress ink. The image that I used is Mikey from Dotties world.


  1. Hi Naomi

    Great card - perfect for a male.
    Love the embossing and distress inks.

    Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week and good luck with the DT call.

  3. Hi Naomi

    Your teenager's card is great.

    It is far easier to cater for a young boy or a grown man - those awkward teenagers just don't fit in so quite so easily LOL!!! But you have done really well here. Great image and use of the sketch.

    Thank you for sharing with Allsorts and for your DT application.

    Love Jules xx

  4. Hi Naomi, great card for a fella any age! Love the layout and colours. Those papers are fab!

    I've just checked my last post cos I thought I'd already put links in to both Jo and Emma's post. I had, and are working cos I've just checked them. Click on Jo's name on the second line and it takes you straight there. The link to Emma's is on the 3rd line - just click on her name too. Hope your well.
