In the oodles and oodles of cards that are taking over the stamp room there is not 1 card I consider a "man card." While in the midst of attempting to clean up yesterday, DH came in and asked for a Thank You card for a client of his. So much for cleaning. I rummaged through mounds of cards. Nope, huh-uh, not that one, too girly, no, no, no ....... ugh! Those comments were from me, not DH. He would have been happy with anything. If only I could adopt that attitude, I would not own the mound of cards referred to earlier. Finally we both settled on one card, he liked it more than me. Hmmmpfhh. As he walked away to mail it, I decided I needed to make a quick man card. Looking around I realized I must own almost every flower stamp made. I settled on Fresh Cuts because the Thank You stamp seems a little more elegant than most. Here's what I ended up with. Simple. This was a 5 minute card. I never produce a card in 5 minutes. Ever.My tricks:
Focus- I was focused on making a man card.
Distraction- I was (glady) distracting myself from cleaning.
In the process of cleaning, I found an envy complete with all the parts here (minus the ribbon/brads) already precut/prescored left over from a class 2 weeks ago. I could either put it all away or making something quick. Quick worked.
Stamps- Fresh Cuts, Sanded BG, Print Patter (retired) BG
Cardstock- Caramel, Teal, Craft
Ink: Basic Brown, Teal, Red, Celery, Caramel
Misc: Brads, Grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals, Distressing tool
Alright, now back to cleaning. The carpet cleaners will be here in 3 hours and I have a mess of stuff still on the stamp room floor!
