You're So Fly



Hello Flourishes Friends!  Today the Design Team is showing off projects with a very fun set - What A Catch.  It is such a great masculine set!  A while ago you might remember me saying I needed to make a number of thank you cards for the staff at our Church on Administrative Assistant Appreciation day, and 2 needed to be masculine.  This was one of the them...


I thought it was a fun play on words to combine this set and the Inside and Out  - Just Because in the sentiments for this card.  "Just because you're so fly" sounds so fun!  I stamped the tackle and gear onto Flourishes Classic Ivory with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then coloured up the image with some masculine colours to match this Authentique Free Bird Nest Comfort and Familiar Paper.  I really like the chevron theme in the design, so I also played that up with an Edgeabilities border along the bottom in Flourishes Color Made Easy Pistachio cardstock.  


Just Because is stamped in Ranger Crushed Olive Ink and You're so Fly is stamped in Forest Moss.  Then it's just a wee bit of jute twine and an Olive button to finish off the detailing.  

You'll want to hop through the Design Team today to see their great cards with What a Catch and get some great inspiration for that man in your life!    And if you're looking for even MORE inspiration check out the Flourishes Gallery for this set as well, you'll find tons of great ideas for that man in your life!   

And, one last note, don't forget to check out the Flourishes Blog again today for new Designer Focus {blushing} hope you can join in on the fun!
