Welcome to May Stampin Friends Blog Hop. We create so many different cards for so many different reasons. But I feel like no matter the creation they definitely have more of a feminine touch this month I focus is celebrating men so our cards were featuring more masculine theme. And if your like me you will want to take a peek at each blog to get some ideas. I constantly struggle with creating the masculine cards. I usually make. Few at a time and that’s about it! I hope you visiting my page from Maureen Rauchfuss and after visiting my blog, hop over Tiziana Milano’s! The sure to leave a comment.

The card that I created uses strips of designer series paper to create a fun background. I chose the 6 x 6 paper stacks in neutral and regal. The colors are Blueberry Bushel, Early Espresso and Smoky Slate. The card base is Blueberry Bushel, with a 4x5 1/4 layer in Smoky Slate. Each DSP strip is cut 1x6 and laid out on top of a piece of Basic White that is 3 3/4x5. Once I was happy with the design I stuck the down to the white. And the. I turned it over and trimmed excess from the edges. See pictures below.
This pattern or style card is a great way to use up all those little scraps of DSP that you can’t bear to toss. I adhered the DSP layer onto the card base using dimensional‘s. For the stamped images I used that He’s All That stamp set with the coordinating dies called All That. I stamped both images in Blueberry Bushel. I used the coordinating die to cut out Blueberry Bushel circle and a smaller circle die I had on hand to cut out the greeting. For the Happy Father’s Day greeting I used a strip of Basic White 3/4” wide and then trimmed it down to side after I stamped. I wrapped one ended with some Smoky Slate Baker’s. Adhered the greetings down with dimensional’s and finish the card off with some Matt dots.
I love how this card came out and it’s definitely masculine! But it’s such a fun and simple card that can be easily adapted to any occasion.
