A Man Thing

Happy Friday!
I'll bet most of you know or are related to someone described by this card. For me, it's my brother in law. The guy lives for duct tape and bungee cords as a fix all for everything. He also has a lot of old cars. Not antiques...just old, and at least one should have been put out of its misery a long time ago. One year for Christmas, I gave him a new set of bungee cords. This was after my sis opened the hood of the old clunker (car, not brother in law, lol) and showed me how he had a bungee cord holding the accelerator cable. With raised eyebrows I just said "Really?" Then made sure sis was not the one driving the bungee mobile. When I found out he planned on doing some rewiring, I sent my hubby over (he actually KNOWS about wiring). I told him she is my only sis and I would not be happy if brother in law burned down their house.

So for my Man Thing card, I wanted to use duct tape, but could only find some dark almost black duct tape around here, so I used some foil tape (don't know what it's used for but it's in the home improvement section) and stuck it to a piece of card stock and embossed it. I used some lg deckle scissors on the ends of the Man Thing part to look more like torn duct tape. The tool border was colored w/ Copics and I just happened to have a tool bg embossing folder to finish it off. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Too cool Julie!! I LOVE your embossed foil tape (I think it's for sealing duct work too) and all the rivets as well as the tool border. All in all a wonderful manly card!
