My DT card for Digi Darla's challenge 51

Its time for our new challenge over at
 and our theme for this week is 

Make it masculine

Its always handy to have a masculine card ready to send especially as so many crafters struggle a bit with making cards for males, the team have come up with some wonderful cards to inspire you and get you started 
Don't forget to come and link your masculine cards to our Challenge linky

Here are the details of my card

This type of card is called an upright Z fold, as you can see a brad at the top of the card holds the card in place but the handy thing is that it can be folded down to go in the post

I have used this lovely image by Digi Darla, its called "Sick boy in bed" and is available HERE in the digi store, the sentiment is also available there too
I used Copic pens to colour

I have printed off two sheets of gingham paper, both available at Pink Petticoat and mat and layered onto brown and blue paper

I have also used 
A Martha Stewart punch, Memory Box's Latchette Border die, Memory Box buttons die, circle die and a brad in the middle of the blue circle that holds the card upright, gingham ribbon and blue and white twine threaded through the buttons and tied into a knot

I am entering this card into the following challenges
