Sparkly Pink for a Guy!

Well as a few friends know I make cards as I was asked if I could make a card for a man that was pink, glittery and sparkly.  Sure I can do that was my immediate reaction, but then the reality set in, what sort of themes for a man would lend themselves to being made in pink.

Never fear good old Birds Cards free background cutting files will help me out.  I know she did one that was like a brick wall so I downloaded the file, the only problem was that it was for a square card so using my trusty inkscape I managed to increase the size of the wall to A4, then I thought what guy doesn't like superheroes so I made an explosion in the center of the wall and added the words sorry you are leaving, I combined the explosion with the wall background and cut it out of white cardstock, which I then layered of the top of some pink glitter card. (this card is starting to look very pink)  The final touch was to add the recipients name which I created using the font Pacifico cut out of white cardstock with a matting layer of pink and highlighted with clear 4mm diamanté.
I think you will agree it ticks all the boxes I was given.

I would love this card to be considered in the following challenges:


  1. What a great card!

    What a challenge you had to make a card for a guy with those colours etc but you did very well indeed!
    How clever of you to extend the background to fit your card size. Love it :)
