Guy Card- Scrapalicious USA Challenge

For this week's Scrapalicious USA Challenge we were given a theme AND a specific product to showcase.
The theme for this Wednesday is to create a Guy Card and to use one of the amazing Spellbinders they offer on the Scrapalicious USA online store!

To many crafters making a Guy Card can pose to be a challenge because we are so used to making projects that appeal to other crafters and to ourselves, and although there are quite a few talented men in the craft community, a majority of us are women! What does this mean? Lots of flowers, frills and dainty embellishments! That doesn't give much room to practice making "manly" type projects. Don't get me wrong, there is no doubt that as women we do not need to be "pinned down" to only making feminine projects, but for me it is definitely out of my comfort zone to create something that is more "appealing" to a man.
So onto my project for this week:

I decided to create a card to give to my Hero, my Dad, on Father's Day (June 19, 2011)

Here is what I used to make my card:
(Both from the terrific online store: Scrapalicious USA)
All paper was from the K&Company "Roam" Paper stack
"Dad" is from The Paper Studio Flocked Alphabet Stickers
Buttons were from my own stash
I also used Ranger Dabber paint in Gold to ink the edges of the torn paper

I hope you enjoyed my project for this week's challenge and don't forget to join in the fun on the Scrapalicious USA Challenge Blog

Very manly! Your dad will love it! Plus the edges look "burnt" off which gives it a really cool piratey feel!

That is a great card! I love the distressing and tearing you did for this. The buttons and the colors are just great for this card! I love making cards as well, I challenge myself even farther by making masculine cards as I have two boys that I get to practice with and my husband too of which supports my hectic habit lol. Glad I found ya hopping along the Teacher's Blog Hop, I'm now a new follower and can't wait to see what else you have to share! Good luck with the Scrapalicious USA Challenge Blog!
