Enjoy the Ride


I always find it hard to make "masculine" cards. Well I needed one for our 17 year old nephew who is graduating from high school and who just got into a prestigious engineering program with a sweet scholarship. So I needed his card to be "boy" but also fun. 

This is what I came up with...







And inside it says "Dude You Rock!" I have always wanted an excuse to use that fun PTI sentiment.

I sponged Tim Holtz distress ink over a few die cut clouds as masks. The bicycle I fuss cut after stamping from a super cute new set I got from Close to my Heart at Scrapfest. The sentiment is also from that set. I also added some cork chevrons and a wood veneer arrow. Cork and wood are "masculine" right??

I thought I would link up with Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week for their "Masculine/ Father's Day" theme.

Congrats Liam! We are so proud of you!

I came from Simon Says Stamp Challenge and saw this entry and I must say this is such a nice card. Would be a great challenge. My warmest fathers day wishes to all great dads in the world. You deserve every "manly" card... LOL.
