He's All That - Cardmaker Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to another Cardmaker Blog Hop.  This month the team's blog hop theme is He's All That---masculine cards that can be for father's day, birthday, thank you, etc.

We all know what a challenge it can be to create a striking masculine design so I am especially excited to see what my awesome teammates came up with today.

Here is my father's day card:
I used some of my favorite supplies for this card and really like how they all complimented each other.  I used the Silhouette file Father and Son (Snapdragon Snippets LLC ) for the main image. (Love it!) The paper/sticker is by Echo Park: This & That: Charming collection.  I used a SRM sticker from Express Yourself-Father's Day along the bottom of the card.  The fun background paper was highlighed with some SU! Magic Mesh (remember that stuff?  I still have some!)  Finally, I added some Cappuccino baker's twine (The Twinery) that I wrapped around the card and then used my Tiny Attacher (Tim Holtz) stapler to secure in place.  All of the elements were sponged with some Tea Dye Distress ink (Ranger.)

Hope you like it!

Cammie, I love the mix of products that you used on your card. I always think guy cards should have a lot of texture, and you really did a great job including that. Love the bold green shade as well!
