The Male Room Challenge #90

Hi there crafty people, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fab weekend.  Today I’m sharing my card for the current Male Room Challenge ( ) which is to include an unexpected item.

I struggled at first to think of what I could include and then got some inspiration from my favourite drink…. diet pepsi!  So I cut into a can and washed it out before die cutting a square and then embossing it.  I have to admit it was very sharp but once I had die cut the square it was much easier to handle and I really like the embossed effect.  I used some of the super sticky red tape to fix it to the card and mat and layered it with some blue and black cardstock.


I used dies from two sets to make the embellishments for the card, the sentiment (My Hero) from the Xcut Mr Mister text set and the tools from Marianne Design Creatables.


I used paper piecing with the tools and sentiment and arranged them onto the card, using foam pads to raise up the sentiment.

I hope that you like my finished card, I’m looking forward to seeing all the other unusual items used in the challenge!
