Best dad ever!

Hi there!

Ribbon on a masculine card always seems a little tricky to me!

But I found a way...





While looking at  a piece of grosgrain ribbon, it reminded me of the collar of a men's golf shirt!
I folded it in half, and trimmed it down to look like a collar. Then glued it to the shirt.

Finished the shirt off with a 'pocket' and decorative tape.

Challenge inspiration from Cas-ual fridays . to make a card for a guy, using ribbon, but no craft as color at all !!!

A ribbon collar? Super creative, Hannelie! Such a great masculine card!

Petra Swart said...

Jong, hier het jy my alweer sprakeloos, vrou!!! Daar is net een persoon wat so kreatief kan wees en dit is beslis JY!!!! Wat 'n fantastiese idee om daai kragie so te doen en ek's mal oor daai sakkie en oulike ry diamante oor die bors!!! Dit laat my terugdink aan party van my liefling Pa se hemde!!! Ag ek wens hy was nog met ons dat ek hierdie kaartjie van jou kon CASE vir hom!!! Dis so oorsproklik en oulik, vrou!!

Ek het nou weereens my kuiertjie by jou so geniet - ek hoop jy geniet die kommentaartjies en ja, jy kan maar hardop lag as ek weereens se ek gaan nie weer agterraak met my blogbesoeke nie!!! Hierdie keer gaan ek regtig 'n ernstige poging aanwend om op datum te bly!!!

Groete, vrou en dankie vir al die inspirasie!! Ek moet nou eers gaan, maar gaan later gou weer kom inloer om te kyk watter van hierdie skeppings van jou almal wenners was.
Tot later - geniet die dag!!!!
