HOUSE MOUSE DECOUPAGE CENTER STEP MASCULINE CARD

Hello and welcome! Today's card is a Center Step Card that has been decoupaged (cut and layered many times). Here is a side view to give you a better idea.

Since the card featured work boots, I added grommets to the bottom of the card and fed some catfish line through it to mimic the shoe laces.

Here's a shot of the front of the card. I debated adding more grommets and laces to the two side panels, but I left them blank so I could add a vertical sentiment later (like Happy on one side and Birthday on the other).

I am entering this in the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ~ Anything Masculine (#HMFMC166). Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great week!
Hugs,

Super card. I like the grommets and lacing and think leaving the side panels blank for the sentiment is a good idea. Here's hoping we win the challenge.

Oh My gosh...Super fun. My friends and I were just talking about grommets last night. Before the invention of that fancy tool-we used to keep our family awake at night when we hammering those babies in LOL!

I am so happy to have you join us for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge~ ♥ Sue Kment

I remember those days well. I used to heat emboss over the gas burners on my kitchen stove because the baby was sleeping. We've come a long way since then.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment. ~ Snoopy :D

OOOH I love those eyelets youve used across the bottom that gives this design the wow factor. I also really love that decoupage image that youve used perfectly. Im trying to find that in a stamp. Reminds me of military boots. Thank you for playing with us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. Good Luck to you and hope you can join us again next week for a new challenge too. :)
