Cards for Him Blog Hop

I am super excited to be a part of this awesome Blog Hop with Catherine Pooler. The newest online class “Cards For Him” is now open for registration!  This is perfectly timed for Father’s Day which is right around the corner, but of course is great for masculine card ideas year-round.

I think most paper crafters will say that masculine cards are one of the hardest cards to create. This card class will sure get your guy-mojo flowing. Lots of great tips, tricks and inspiration.



I was inspired by the nautical themed cards and pulled out my Happy Harbor set by Reverse Confetti along with some nautical themed papers (all supply links are listed below, but I did use all RC stamps and Confetti Cuts to create my card today) to get a jump on a Father's Day card.

Here is a closer look at the detail I added. The anchor from Happy Harbor was stamped in navy ink and then I gave it a coating of clear embossing powder. I tied on some kraft burlap twine. The banner is from Beautiful Banners. I stamp first and then use the matching die to cut it out. I stamped the sentiment in Kraft ink. The word dad was custom stamped thanks to the Lighthearted Letters set. 





We've joined forces with some of the companies and their designers that have products featured in our class for a Blog Hop to celebrate our newest release.  There are TEN FREE class registrations hidden along the hop, so make sure you leave comments along the way.
