Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am taking part in a special International Blog Highlight by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop. I would greatly appreciate it if you would please vote for my project. You can vote Tue May 16 @ 6pm Eastern by clicking here

I am in slot #18 . Voting is done by clicking on the heart in the upper right hand corner of the picture that appears when your mouse hovers over the photo.
Our theme for this highlight is to make a masculine card. We will all be using different Stampin’ Up! products with the same theme, but imagine how many different card designs there will be for new ideas to make for a guy!
The focal point of the card is most certainly the sentiment. But the DSP (patterned paper) steals the show. Pieces & Patterns stamp set works perfectly with Pick a Pattern DSP. The sheet I chose has many animals with a woodland/camping theme. While working on this project, I discovered that one of the Layering Circle Framelits dies will nicely cut out the circle stamp. Making guy cards is not always easy to accomplish so I chose to make a cute card from a paper that could be liked by a guy.
For a visual demonstration for making this project, please see the video link below.
