Man Flu!

Isn't it funny how, when a woman gets a cold, it's just a cold but when a man gets one it's flu? The poor dears even get bigger tissues!

For this card I've made a tissue box top by die cutting a rectangle of black card with an oval die cut from the middle. I stencilled the words "Man Size" on it, using a white gel pen, then stuck a real paper tissue to the back to poke out through the opening.

I stamped a Get Well sentiment onto the card then added a tiny touch of colour by ruling parallel lines all around the card and colouring in the crossover areas. I raised the "tissue box" on foam pads to add interest and so that the tissue behind the opening wouldn't cause a bulge.

I am sharing this with
The Male Room - use an unexpected item (the real tissue)
Watercooler Wednesday - Anything Goes masculine

What a perfect card, Jane! Oh yes, everything about a man's cold is super-sized, so why not that box of tissues? I had to laugh over that sentiment. Yes, get well NOW---soon isn't soon enough. LOL Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
