Male cards

This is a card I have made for my OH birthday, he has a reputation for being the world's worst dancer, true I am afraid, old ladies quiver in fear when he is on the dance floor lol. The image is really supposed to be playing the air guitar but he does tend to have some 'interesting' dance moves. I have embossed the sentiment to make it stand out a bit more. I have inked around the image and sentiment. I have stitched around the card using my new sew easy, not perfect as some of the threads are a bit loose but I'm sure my OH wont mind me using his card as a trial run

Buttons from my stash

This card is for my dad, I knew I was going to use these papers as he has been mad on trains all his life, and worked for them all his working life too. I know the image is a bit babyish but hope the sentiment kind of brings it together.
