Flippin' Men cards..

I like the Flippin' Men range. I find it pretty difficult to get ideas for mens cards and these really help me out! As you can see, I have been pretty busy!! August is a manic Birthday month for Mark and I, and we have a few special ones this month, Marks Uncle is the big 70 and his boss is 50! I hope they like these cards! They took me over an hour each to make......!!

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone else who makes these using the proper aperture cards as it says in the instructions to use 3mm thick foam pads, which I found were still to small and ended up doubling them up to make 6mm! Works much better! Have you had the same problem? It's probably just me! hehe

The backing papers I used were from a set I bought from Costco. They are 2 sided which came in very handy as you can see! The aperture I had to cut out I just turned around and stuck down! I got the buttons from the 99p shop. They came in a pack of 5 with about 20 buttons in 3 different colours! 50 buttons for 99p isnt bad really is it!! I'd head down to your local 99p shop and grab some! They have a whole range of colours!! The felt letters 'DAD' were from a pack of PaperMania stash I had laying about, and they really add a finishing touch I think!
