Let's Hear it for the Boys Blog Hop with Sweet 'n Sassy


Hi everyone and welcome to the fabulous all boys Sweet 'n Sassy blog hop! I love that we're taking a day to celebrate the fabulous men and boys in our lives! (This coming from someone who is surrounded by boys...hubby, two little men in training, and even a male cat! LOL!)

I opted to celebrate the great outdoors with my card, that I did in fact make for my hubby for Father's Day. I started by using Distress Ink and a blending tool to make my sunset background. Then I just needed to stamp the tree image from the Tender Thoughts stamp set on my background. The deer was stamped on a piece of scrap paper and fussy cut, then attached with foam tape. The sentiment is actually from the Birthday Word Art stamp set (I added Happy Father's Day inside the card). And since the tree image is large, I used a whole bunch of paper layers for design on the card (along with one piece embossed cardstock). 

Hope you enjoy today's hop and wishing all those dads out there a Happy Father's Day!

Can a masculine card be pretty? In any case, it's fantastic. Love the orange shading in the background Kathy.
