I know, I know, you might be thinking that is a rude title but it is for my Grandfather who is turning 84 so I think he would be flattered to be called an old Boy and not an old Man!! I am not very good at males cards but my new year resolution is to try harder to make great Boys cards. When I saw the Just Magnolia sketch for the fortnight, Week 38, I was in a busy rush doing Christmas cards and didn't give it a second thought, however now I have been thinking birthday cards and I think this sketch is excellent for male cards, gives them a little extra.
The Edwin is a stamp that a friend stamped for me and I must admit I looked at it and thought I will never use that! Then I started to think about altering stamps and thought 'Why don't I cut the wings off?'. I think it lends itself a little better to the older, more conservative male like this and I love how the card turned out. What do you think? Don't get me wrong, I love the Magnolias as they are but I tested it out on my hubby and he said it looked a little off!!
