Guy cards are so hard!

My older brother's birthday is this week. He is way older. Like two whole years and two whole months older. This is the mean brother who doesn't read my blog. He has no interest in cards or stamping or anything I do. But I made him this card anyway. But I loaded the inside with LOTS of glitter so when he opens it, he'll have glitter everywhere that will stick on every body part imaginable. And it will stick for days! He'll find glitter even after the excitement of his birthday is over. I made sure.

His wife and children are nice though. And his wife reads my blog faithfully everyday (hi Tamera!) so I hope she'll heed this warning and have him open the card in his car! ha ha. He loves his car. It is some kind of souped up race car/camero/mustang or something. Every time I visit them, he asks me if I'd like to drive his car. He must think I like cars like he likes cars and that I'm impressed with the sound of the motor revving. I'm not though. And I turn him down every single time he asks. I guess I have my hobbies and he has his. But we know, though, don't we, whose is more important, right??

I waited all day for Julee to put her mojo challenge on but she hasn't yet. I guess I have to find my own mojo. It took a lot of mojo too, because guy cards are so hard for me! For this card I started with the giant Sticky Letters from Stampin Up. They are incredibly sticky two-sided letters and numbers that you can decorate with glitter. Use a little caution when you work with these. They tend to fold over on themselves and can be tricky. I put these on plain white cardstock, glittered them and then cut them out. I should have put them on chocolate chip but didn't. I used the chunky glitter on them (the same chunky glitter I sabotaged the card with in honor of my brother) that is from Stampin Up. The colors are Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip, and Creamy Carmel. Other accessories include a Chocolate Chip marker to faux stitch, the slit punch, little and big star punches, pewter brads, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, striped paper from The Paper Studio, and the ticket corner punch.
