You Are Amazing!
I have another Manly card for you today! At least, I hope it is manly! I'm playing with the Pink by Design Ink it Pink challenge again this week! The goal was to create a masculine project. I wanted to do this to challenge myself as I always find it hard to make masculine cards and layouts - yet the majority of my family is male! I am the only girl of three children, have a bonus SON (no daughters) and 3 nephews (no nieces) so you'd think I'd be a pro at creating MANLY designs. I'm not! I prefer the pink, orange, flowery, glittery, girly pages and layouts best! Sorry boys! At any rate, I made this card for my dad. I've already made a Father's Day Card for him so I might just save this one for a random day and mail it to him. :) So here it is....let me know if it's MANLY enough....would you give it to your Dad?!?
For this card, I used mostly scraps - a few came from the DCWV Tattered Time stack. I used the provocraft Fleur-de-lis embossing folder in my cuttlebug to create the textured paper. I used the Pink by Design Script 1 background stamp on the card base and the DAD you are amazing sentiment came from the Pink by Design Our Father's set. For the banners, I just cut different widths and lengths of paper and then just used scissors to create the banner shape - that's why they're not so symmetric! The burlap came from Hobby Lobby.
I kinda like how it turned it out! How about you?
