MFT January Creative Challenge - Masculine

Hi, everyone, it's time again for MFT's Creative Challenge. This month we're challenged to make a masculine card. The timing on this was awesome--I needed to make a thank you card for the administrators at my former employer. Since they're both guys, this was perfect!

Sooo, I'm using Thanks a Bunch for the sentiments, both inside and out, and one of my favorite Die-namics sets, Well Worn Greetings. Such a lovely stack of shapes in this set! I'm also using an MFTWSC sketch for my layout, Number 48. I did some stitching, some ink distressing, and finished off the layout with some buttons--much more masculine than the flower I'd normally put there :) I thought these papers also reflected the challenge well.

 Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:

 Thanks SO much for stopping by! To see how the rest of the design team interpreted this challenge, be sure to check out the list of those participating at the MFT Blog.

  1. What a great card!!! :) Masculine cards are difficult for me...especially with my love of the Who's That Girl (not that I don't like the Who's That Guys sets-there just aren't that many!) and the a la modes!

    Thank you for sharing!
