Father's Day cards part 1


Hi all! I'm back again (don't you love vacations!) with a masculine card using 2 of my favorite sets: My Hero, My Dad & Grunge Me. This also qualifies for the Papertry Paper Dolls Challenge #39 here. Please play along. Each challenge is open for a long time but we post a new one every other Thursday. I used Dark Chocolate and Fine Linen (FAVORITE!! neutral) with lots of Versamark ink and stamping off DC ink.  Double ended banner die, chocolate twine and button "ties" it all up nicely.

*** I do have one thing to say about Tiffany Pastor's MHMD set.  A lot of people on the PTI forum only wanted to have the corrugated stamp from this set (and yes, it is an amazing stamp!!).  I must say that this entire set is worth every penny.  I do have 2 cards to make for my dad and FIL for Father's day (and then for my kids to make their "grandpa" cards) and I can make a card for my husband from the kids (he really likes my cards) and then they can use it to make their cards for Father's day... but there are lots of other uses.  I recommend you take a fresh look at this set again for all that it can do for your cards or scrapbook layouts. ***

Enjoy!

I love this card. The DC and FL are beautiful...and bakers twine always makes me smile. :) Grunge Me was on my "wish list" - somehow I missed MHMD as I was going through the website (I'm sure I missed others, too). It looks like a great set...and there it went, onto my wish list.

Kristin . . . love, love, love your color combo here! I never thought of D. Choc. & F. Linen together--it's divine AND something different for those at times elusive masculine card ideas. Thank you!

What a wonderful masculine card! I'm one of those who only wanted the corrugated stamp from this set. But, after seeing your card and you raving about the set, I may have to put it in my cart soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
