Freebie Men In Mind Alpha

Clipart Fairy is offering a freebie alpha called Men In Mind over on her blog, there will be five letters each day until you have a full uppercase, and lowercase alpha and all the numbers. So far the first 10 lowercase letters are up. She also has a matching paper set in her store.

This card uses a few of the letters, the golfer from the Golf Mad kit (you can also buy him as a digi stamp) and a grey paper (used on the bottom front and inside of the card) from the Urban Roundabout papers 2.

I laid out the card design in my graphics software, and also tweaked the colour of the golfers shirt to make him a better match for the letters, printed it, and then put the card through again and printed the plain grey paper on the reverse. I folded the card down the right hand edge of the letters then cut around bottom, top and left hand side while the card was still folded. I then opened up the card and cut around the front design only on the right hand side, leaving the edge straight on the back section. I printed the front design again, cut around it and attached to the front with foam pads, I also cut a plain section to match the back and attached this with foam pads, (it makes the card more stable).
The golfer and the letter A were also printed again and both attached with foam pads, I inked around the edges with a brown ink pad and added three buttons and some string from stash.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Whoopsi daisy challenge - Someone special
Tuesday Throwdown  - 3D - Pop it up
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
ECP Challenges - Something for the Boys
