Daisy Doodles Challenge #58

Over at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges we have a new challenge today

One For The Boys


For my card I have used the Private Ryan set which has a postcard, camo tent and little soldier in 3 formats for only $3. Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check these out and all the other great digi’s that are available !

I coloured in the image using Promarkers & Flexmarkers and some metallic Promarkers for the tent pegs and pole and tufts of grass. I covered the front of my card with brown paper and used a very dark green, crumpled it up and inked the creases and distressed the edges by tearing and scuffing with the edge of my scissors.  I have used a shoe lace in a camo pattern as a manly version of ‘ribbon’ and created my own sentiment and die cut it using a Quickutz cookie cutter die, distressed the edges and mounted with 3d foam.

The sentiment is below and you are most welcome to download for yourself. It is in both JPG and PNG format and I would appreciate it if you use it you link back to me and leave me a comment so I can pop along and see your project.


I am really pleased with how this turned out. I am not normally very good with cards for men or boys but with the help of some fab images I think I’ve not done a bad job with this one J
I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from the rest of the DT and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our Masculine challenge.

I'll see you again next week with another lovely Daisy Doodles design.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Papers – Costco
Sentiment – Made By Mandy J
Tools - 3d Foam pads, Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Ink pad, Quickutz cookie cutter die
Embellishments – Camo pattern shoe lace
Techniques – Diecutting, distressing

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
