How to Thank a Guy

How do you thank a guy with a card that isn’t too girly?  A friend helped me out and I wanted to let him know I appreciated the assistance, so I tucked a gift card into this card I made and then mailed it off!  I used this fun vitage-looking Lucky paper from Close to My Heart, wooden designer buttons, a little strip of kraft paper, and spelled out “thanks” with the cute Field Trip alphabet stamps.  I think what makes a card a good “guy” card is the color scheme.  Browns, blues, rust and olive greens seem like good earth tones that we identify with guys.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
