MASCULINE THEMED CARDS

 JUST IN TIME FOR FATHER'S DAY!


Welcome!  Today we'll take a look at a few cards I've crafted that are suitable for Dad!  Having my wonderful husband, Daddy, son, and grandson, along with my brother and brothers-in-law and nephews, the occasion for sending cards with a masculine theme occurs on a regular basis!  With Father's Day right around the corner, let's get started!

This "You Are Really Really Awesome" card says it all!  It is made using components included in the Workshops Your Way® Father's Day Cardmaking Kit.  When you order this kit from me, you are able to download a cutting guide and instructions for 12 cards.  You'll see that even though it includes a "Father's Day" sentiment stamp , it is by no means limited to this one day!  I used Lagoon ink for the sentiment and Ruby for the stars on my card. 

Along with this easy to use kit, I made up some cards for the guys in my life also using the Enchantment Fundamentals Paper and various stamps.  You, too, can make these!  I'm here to help!  Here's one of them.  My stamping is done on White Daisy Cardstock adhered with Foam Tape.  



I also used a variety of embellishments, including the twine shown here, from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack, and Black Dots.  
The magnificent deer on my card is a stamp that is part of Nature's Wish.  Hint:  This set is also great for Christmas cards! It is a "go-to" stamp!  My image is stamped with Cocoa ink.  

Just this morning when I was outside tending to the garden, this beautiful creature came walking up my driveway!  I fumbled my gloves off to retrieve my phone to snap a quick picture! Such a delight!


My Adventure Card shown here, is also made using the Enchantment Fundamentals Paper Pack.  I used a blue and white twine from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack.  My stamping is done with Archival Black ink using three different stamps from the Let's Go set.  

Until next time --

Thank you so much for visiting!

I enjoy hearing from you!  Have a wonderful day!
Happy Papercrafting,

Gayle Piron
