The ladies at Hand Stamped Sentiments have a Father's Day card challenge this week. So I pulled out my trusty Sail Away stamp and got busy. Masculine cards are not normally my thing. Especially since the females in my home outnumber the lone male! But I do have brothers, nephews, and of course my Dad to make cards for as well, so I often have to step out of the comfort zone and make 'manly' cards. Other supplies on this card are brilliant blue (ret.), real red, and very vanilla card stock, black Stazon and brilliant blue inks, pastels, linen thread, and some retired star brads. I also used my 'go to' square lattice embossing folder. Since I already had the paper cut, I went ahead with a birthday card too. I'm pretty sure none of my male family members will view this before receiving their card! :-) TFL!
Both card images were colored with chalks.
