Navy Pumpkin Father's Day

In honor of all the men in our lives, I did a masculine themed workshop this week. The next three cards are the cards we made. For two of the cards, we used the Travel Journal DSP. It's just perfect for masculine cards.

The highlight of this card is the Wide Striped Ribbon. I Love it! It has been popping up everywhere. Most cards are tying it with Linen thread...I took it a step further and added a Jumbo Brad. It's perfect for masculine cards because you don't need a bow to use it. I think I will be investing in many more colors ;)

This card was inspired by an Ilina Crouse design. If you haven't seen her website, you must check it out! I had one of those Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda moments as I was making this card and wished I had bought the Cog Punch that coordinates with this DSP. Oh well...there's still time to order, right ;)

I love the colors on this card and had a lot of fun making it. Can you say that about a masculine card??? Hope you find these cards inspiring. Thanks for stopping by!
