Masculine Card #1

I know we all have a  hard time with masculine cards so I bought some things to help with this type card.  Months ago I purchased some Anna Griffin die cut called "For The Boys".  I had never used them.  That's how I struggle with guy cards.  Recently I bought a set of Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for him.  I really liked the embossing folders so they got me to thinking about combining the two products.  So I set to work making some cards which I'm going to show you over the next few days.  The first is a card I made for my grandson, Jacob, to give his Dad for Father's Day.
Notice the background embossing and the label at the top have Dad on them.  Craig used to build houses so I thought these embellishments were fitting for him.  I hope he and Jacob like it.

Thank you for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for Masculine Card #2.

God Bless You!!! Peggy
