70th Birthday Card using Iris Folding Technique

Hi Susan

Here is a card I made for a 'young friend'. I decided on using the iris-folding technique (once again) seeing that there are not many 'options' for men cards.



Hello Ronell

I love your way of using a photo on you specially made cards! Once again, the iris folding technique has served you well here. Did your young friend like his card? I hope he had a memorable day.

I know what you mean about there not seeming to be many options for making masculine cards, so I put together a page of ideas for creating masculine cards that may help next time?

I always want to use flowers and pretty things but men just don't seem to expect those items on their greetings. We can replace them with stronger images like stars, squares, arrows, nuts and bolts etc.

I use twine or something like wire instead of ribbon too. Then you just follow your favourite sketch and see how it turns out. You can make your own sketches for scrapbook pages too.

If anyone else reading has an idea for making cars for men, please do share.. I'm glad we now have Ronell's idea to add to the mix.

May your day be a crafty one, Ronell :)
