The Bug and I: Another Card

I needed a birthday card and my Cuttlebug included a perfect birthday folder. This is another guy card which have always been a challenge for me because I like to add all kinds of stuff. But I kept it pretty simple.
I used DCWV paper ( a brown herringbone pattern) layered with embossed metal and the focal point of the card is an embossed present. That’s one of four mini folders that came with the Cuttlebug. The metal was already embossed ( bought it at a craft fair) but I’m pretty sure it was also done using “the bug” so going forward, I can make more. Mwaaaahhhhhhh
Here’s the center of the card close up:
Layered on another piece of the metal, on top of a scrap of the brown herringbone.
The whole thing is on a plain white card. Other embellishments:
K&CO self adhesive scrapbook borders and strips of self adhesive pearlized diamond thingies from one of my dumpster dives in the clearance bins at Michaels. $.99 for the whole package!

Cute card ... I have a tough time making "guy cards" so this is great inspiration for me. I bought a cuttlebug over a year ago thinking that one of my daughters would use it for school projects ... it sat in the original box on a shelf in the craft room until about 3 months ago. I'm hooked on it now ... it is an awesome tool!
I just posted a chocolate wrapper project on my blog today and was thinking about you when I wrote it!

See? Told you.. folder plus metal equals 10 degrees of coolness. You'll be wanting them all now. This card is really fantastic, and just right for a man.
