Card for a man

I find that I tend to make most cards for women and have to give some extra thought to creating cards for men.  I frequently resort to humor for men.  Here's one I just made.

The Ziggy stamp is an old one from Stampendous - Jump for Java.  The center stamp is by Serendipity and the Great Birthday stamp is by Hero Arts.  The borders are cut from patterned paper.

This card folds flat to fit an A2 envelope.  Cardstock is cut
5 1/2" X 12" and scored at 2", 4", 8" & 10".  It is then cut 1" from top & bottom between the score lines at 2" & 10".  The folds are made in opposite directions in the center panel and the borders.  The front panel extends to second fold, but is only glued in the center part on the right side.

Today is the last day you can vote in the Joann's Craft for a Cause contest.  The winner will be announced on Dec. 7.  I'm voting daily for Operation Write Home.  They can really use these funds for postage to mail boxes of cards to our troops.
