CardMaker Blog Hop: He's All That

Hi everyone!  Welcome to today's CardMaker blog hop!  The theme is He’s All That, and the blog team was asked to make masculine cards. With all the graduations going on right now, I made a masculine graduation card! 

Whenever I think of masculine cards I always think of stars and brown tones first.  So it's no surprise I went with both on this card.  I thought I would have some fun with my star die cuts with a sort of peek-a-boo opening at the bottom.  To make this, first I cut off 1.25" from the bottom of the card, next I cut off another 1/2" which would be my opening.  Gluing down the stars was a bit tricky, so I temporarily adhered my card to my grid mat and made sure everything was lining up perfectly.  There is a lot going on at the bottom, so I added some scored lines all across the top to sort of balance things out.
 Check out the other girl's blogs and see what masculine projects they have for you today!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!!
