Inspired by Argyle...


Argyle is probably one of the most popular varieties of check patterns in men's fashion - think socks and sweaters!  So why not use it for a 'man' card.  The pattern is typically made up of overlapping diamonds or lozenges.   I've used a mixture of die cut lozenges and stitching to create my argyle pattern.

It's a design I'll be using again and ties in nicely with the Lets Craft and Create challenge 'One for the boys' which launches today over on the blog.  Fabulous designs from the LCC girls, you must check out Eileen's amazing tractor card, so clever.  Every card maker needs a few 'man' cards in their stash so why not take the opportunity to make one for our challenge.  You could be the lucky winner!

    1. Hi Suze, I did the stitching by hand, didn't trust myself with the machine on this one! I used a ruler and a hat pin to make the holes first x
