A Guy Greetings Masculine Card

I found this fun card on Pinterest It was made by Leanne at Wee Inklings.  You can see her card here.  

It was a fun card to make.  I used the 2-1/2" circle punch to punch out the row of hats and shoes image.  Then I used the size a little larger in the circle framelits to make a nice layer behind the image layer.

The base of my card is Whisper White.  The base of the original card was Lost Lagoon.  I only had a quarter of a sheet of Lost Lagoon left and I didn't want to open the new package since this color is retiring at the end of the year.  

My decorative paper may be retired already, I don't remember.  I know I bought it when it first came out and I did not repurchase it in the current catalog.  I figured I could squeak by if the designs had changed.  I buy those packs and NEVER use them up.  I don't even think I even use up a single design in any of the colors in the pack. So I couldn't justify buying another pack of the same colors, even if the images had changed.  Anyway, I cut my strips 3-1/2" x 1-1/4" .  The Basic Black piece was cut 4-1/4" long by 1-3/4" wide.  I just played around with them until they set where it was pleasing to my eye.  

The "DAD" is in the "Guy Greetings" set. I stamped it using Lost Lagoon ink and punched it with the 3 size ribbon end punch.  I'm not sure what the name of that punch is.  Unfortunately I am not near my catalog to look it up.  I tucked the tag between the layers. 

The focal layer is set in place using Dimensionals.

It as a very simple and quick card to make. I think it would be a wonderful Father's Day card but it also makes a nice Birthday card for dad too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
