I had to make a card for My Daughters school janitor who will retire in April after 10 years at the school. I was asked by the school's PTA to make a few cards for teachers and staff who are leaving and this is one of them.
As you probably know, I am rubbish at mens cards but I was looking through my Cute Daisy May downloads for an image for another card I need to do and I found the perfect images to use. Then I had a good look through my papers and found some with hammers, saws and other tools on it and thought, perfect.
.I thought this boy image was just right for this card since he's a janitor and I could just imagine him in this sort of clothes. He doesn't really wear clothes like this though lol. I followed this weeks fab sketch by the amazing Dawny at Papertake weekly. I'm not sure where the brown tool print paper is from because I cut off the strip and have no idea what I done with it...duh, but the others are s.e.i and Junkitz.
The sentiment is just printed from my computer.
I just had to decorate the inside of this card because I couldn't choose what image to use. Both these images were perfect for a janitors card. Told you I really do love those Cute Daisy May downloads!! I have left it quite plain because I didn't want anything fussy as it's a man's card and have left loads of room for everyone to write on.
I did also cover the back of the card with the rest of the tool paper just so you can see the whole design somewhere, but I thought it would be a bit boring to show you that.
Please let me know what you think of this one as I'm never sure when it comes to mens cards. If its for a female you can just stick loads of flowers and frills on and hope for the best but I don't think much men would appreciate that lol.
