100% Man Made Ensemble – by Holly McMillen

Holly has created a wonderful card ensemble especially for the guys in your life. AND she made a fun tote to hold the cards. Putting cards into a coordinated tote immediately turns them into a little gift item. Now how fun is that! Take a look:

Here is Card No. 1.

A wonderfully simple design but with texture and interest.

And here is Card No. 2.

A perfect birthday card for that special man in your life!

And this is Card No. 3.

Again, lots of texture with the suede string – love it!

This is the front of the little tote – tutorial link included on Holly’s post.

It’s a quick make, just like the cards.
