June H2H Guest Designer: Man, Oh Man

Hello there, Artsy Friends! I am truly honored to be Heart 2 Heart Challenges Guest Designer for the month of June 2015! Heart 2 Heart is a challenge blog for projects that feature Close to My Heart products. A new project is posted every Monday, and you have the rest of the month to complete the projects.

The third challenge this month is a masculine inspired challenge. This was the perfect opportunity to create a Father's Day card for my awesome husband. I used the Jackson Paper Pack to create a retro suit that my Salvation Army styled husband would totally rock.


I cut the bow tie using the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I absolutely adore this bow! It works as a great accent for a lot of different projects.


The sentiment is the Best Dad Ever stamp set stamped in Cocoa right on the suit design. I thought this stamp had a great throwback feel, just like the suit.


For the inside of the card, I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and some mustache washi tape.


I am also entering this for Color My Heart's Color Dare #146.

Ingredients:
Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!
