Waltzingmouse Stamps Presents: Man of the Hour

As promised, I'm back for Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps April Release Previews. Today, we're going back to the masculine themed projects.  I'm so excited to show these to you! I made a gift set for Dad. There's a card as well as packaging for a little gift. This features the stamp set Man of the Hour.

This is my favorite card for the entire release. I used different sentiments and combined them in one card to make the entire card. I also used the border stamp from My Kind of Guy to separate the sentiments.

For the gift, I just wrapped it with kraft wrapping paper. Then I tied some twine around it and added the little sentiment over it. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a piece of charcoal cardstock.

 That's it for Day 3! I know that there are a lot of us who have a hard time with masculine cards. I hope this helps a bit and gives you more ideas for your masculine cards. Make sure to head on over to the other DT girls for more inspiration.
