DIY Chaps Card

Anyone that knows my husband, know that he is able to do pretty much anything he turns his hand to..... He is the original DIY hotty, that every woman needs around the house LOL

With this in mind... (that's the DIY part, not the hotty part), I did this little chap for his birthday card.

The image was from the same clear stamp set I got for the golfing man. I stamped him onto 120gsm fine white paper, and matted him onto black card stock.

I then matted this topper onto some silver card stock that I had run through my lovely new cuttlebug machine.

All of this got mounted onto black gloss blank card stock, using 3d foam mount.

The wording was from the same clear stamp set, and I embossed it with silver heat it up powder and my heat gun.

Not a bad finish for a totally monochrome effect.


  1. I love this card Jo...Its fab!
    I've added you to my new creative blog roll on Mamamakes x

  2. So you can make man cards then Jo - that's great, I bet Paul loved it.

    I'm the DIYer in our house, my hubby can't even knock a nail in straight!!! lol.

    At work when we cleaned out the rat infested shed I added a bolt to the bottom of the door and a little snib to the top to keep the door tight shut to hopefully keep the rodents out. Our lady caretaker doesn't do anything like that.

  3. By the way, for some reason your updates aren't appearing on my blog to tell me you've done a new post, I've just clicked on your follower picture on my blog to see if you've been up to anything.

  4. Meant to say I see you are enjoying using your Cuttlebug too.
