MacGyver card

Hi everyone.




Here to post my MacGyver card for the challenge over at the AAA Cards Blog


 
 
With MacGyver in mind I was thinking 'very masculine'!!!  With all the items he needed and trying to keep the card CAS I came up with this:   (Think it would rather go through as 'nearly CAS', though!!)
 

 
 
 
 
and the inside:
 
 
 
 
I die-cut a big hole in the front of my card and adhered a black circle to the inside of the card.  The little kid I've put together for Mac, I adhered to the black circle on the inside of the card.  And it's all there   ....the string
           ....the corrugated paper
           ...the plastic
           ...the stamps
           ...and of cause the (very big) hole!!!    I've even added a gear and a clothes' peg as an extra ...cause you know....  with MacGyver you never know what he might need!!!  
I was actually thinking ...maybe ol Mac would find a big MFT flower handy for some trick, or maybe just to impress some nice lady....but the boys gave that a definite no-no ... oh ghee.. pity, hey!!!!  LOL!!!
And the little star  ..got that laying around on my table and I thought it would add some colour to my card and go nicely with the little kid  ..and I was thinking, too ..Ol Mac is a star, hey!!!
The letters and chevrons I've done with several layers of cs as the trend is to do nowadays.
The stamps I've used are from Verve. 
 
 
So that's my MacGyver card!!  Had lots of fun making it!!!
  
 
 
 
And look who inspected my card  ...a Fiscal Shrike


and our darling Siamese, Timothy!!!

                                    


 
So that will be it for now!!!  Visit the AAA cards Blog to join in the fun!!!


Till next time!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards.
Petra

Love the card and all of the items used. It was quite nice and cool for the shrike and cat to make sure all was well with your card. Obviously it passed inspection. I agree. Excellent.

The flip over is soooo cool and MacGyverish! Neat, really comes off as a gentleman's card. Thank for playing, sharing and hopping around with us at AAA Cards. Big hugs

Well, I NEVER would have made this challenge, but you have interpreted it famously! So many textural elements and you had a good reason for each one of 'em to help out McGyver. Loved the colors, loved your take on the challenge, and I was pleased to see it had Tim's Meow approval also. Terrific card, and well done - you've a fantastic imagination & the ability to translate that creatively! TFS & Hugs

Cool with a capital C, Petra ... this is an awesome card with all the MacGyver elements! It obviously passed muster with the shrike ... and with Timothy, who looks as though he finds it good enough to eat! Anita :)

Hope Timothy kitty isn't licking his chops after a tasty snack of Fiscal Shrike!

MacGyver is going to be knocking on your door because someone as resourceful, clever, & talented as you surely needs to be on his team! Fun creation Petra!
