Dad's gotten his Father's Day card already, so I can post this now to show you that YES, I can make masculine cards! YES, I mailed it to him so he got it on time (Saturday) and I didn't have to spend extraordinary overnight postage (per usual!!) ... and he LOVED it.
I made this card using Close To My Heart's Buzz and Bumble line of papers and trims, along with their Burlap Ribbon cut in half lengthwise. The sentiment is computer-generated. I cut the pennants from the alternate side of the paper, and inked their edges using CTMH Exclusive Inks in Saddle. The cute bee (is there such a thing?) holding the sentiment banner was fussy cut and topped with CTMH Liquid Glass. Even the hemp twine is from CTMH! :) The bee sticker (that looks like sealing wax!) is from the Buzz and Bumble Assortment.
If you'd like to try out the Buzz and Bumble lines (or stock up, as I did), be sure to hurry, since it's retiring after the new CTMH Idea Book comes out this summer for Autumn/Winter. If you don't yet have a CTMH Consultant, I'm happy to send you (free!) the new Idea Book ... Just leave me a comment and a way to contact you so I can get your address for shipping. I expect delivery of the new Idea Book in a few weeks!
