My Creative Time: Designer Challenge-Masculine Theme

 With Father’s day this month, today’s My Creative Time challenge is to make a MASCULINE THEMED card. Anything “guyish” – manly color palette, favorite sport, dad’s favorite chair, etc.

So here is what I came up.

I found this file at the Lori Whitlock shop and thought it would be perfect for the challenge. Plus, it would be a great Father's day card as well!

Once I got all of the pieces cut out, I used a Cuttlebug and the Argyle folder to emboss the vest. I then added white gel pen stitching to the sides.

For the pockets, I used My Creative Time's Stitched Goody Dies.

For the bow, I used the My Creative Time's Fun Sized Scallop Stitched Bow die. I cut the scallops off to make it look more like a man's bow tie.

I then finished by adding the sentiment from My Creative Time's Lost at Sea stamp set onto a banner from My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label Die.

Well that's my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you will all join in on the challenge!
