Masculine Card

Hey everyone! So I actually managed to get some time to work on a small project this morning because my 2 1/2 year old has basically been laying on the couch not feeling well since 5 this morning. I feel bad for her, not feeling well, but it IS a little bit nice to not have her quite as active as she usually is for a few hours.... Here is the Father's Day card I whipped up.

I had no natural light this morning so this is as good as the pictures are going to get... They don't really show the colors correctly but you get the idea.

Not gonna lie, I am so tired of Father's Day cards... I just am not great when it comes to masculine and I am creatively frustrated lately!! I can't wait to start on a sparkly, pretty project!! :)

Here are some details...
  • 3 ties are cut from Simply Charmed at 3" - one is embossed with an argyle cuttlebug folder, one embossed with a candy cane stripped cuttlebug folder, the other one is cut from patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye stack All Boy
  • the sentiment 'always a Father, now a friend' is from Pink By Design All in the Family set (HERE - it's on SALE right now!!)
  • red mat behind the ties was embossed with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder
  • brad and ribbon are from my stash
I am entering this card into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Challenge.

Hopefully be back soon - with something GIRLY!! :)

This is a great masculine card! You did an awesome job for feeling creatively frustrated! I can relate, I hate when I feel like that because it's hard to get a project started! Love the card. :)
