It's Raining Men! Or ... at least Cards for men, that is!

HA! Yes, my frieds, it's raining cards for men over at Gourmet Rubber Stamps this week! The Design Team had come together for the DT challenge and we are creating masculine cards (aka: Cards for men. Men in tights. *Tight! Tights!*...ooopsies...got a little carried away there...no...just cards for men. Just say'n.)

Handsome or Awesome


And...with Father's Day on the way, that is mighty convenient as many of us will be pulling out the supplies to create cards for the special men in our lives! I used the SUPER Adorable Daddy-O set for this card along with some fabulous papers and sticker from Echo Park Paper Company.

Handsome or Awesome (detail)


To create that fun sentiment accent I stamped the image in black, cut it out, stamped it again in juniper and cut out just the 'handsome or awesome' part, mounted that with foam tape onto the black version and then I mounted all of that with foam tape onto a sticker from the This and That collection. The background ties are all stamped in black ink and I colored some stripes in yellow and then paper pieced one tie to make it stand out EXTRA! This was seriously a super fun card to create!

So...who's a special man in your life? Dad? Father of your children? Father of your fur-children? Dad-like kinda guy? Uncle? Grandfather? Father of YOUR Grandchildren? Don't forget to create a little something to let them know you love them!

Don't forget to head on over to Gourmet Rubber Stamps to check out the challenge AND see what the rest of the amazing DT has created! These girls have serious skills! You will NOT want to miss out on these card inspirations!
