MFT January Creative Challenge - For the Guys!

Welcome to MFT's January Creative Challenge.  This month we're focusing on cards for the guys in our lives.  This was perfect timing for me as my husband's birthday was yesterday so I took the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.  

I pulled my trusty Well Worn Greetings Die-namics and stamp set out.  My own personal rule of thumb when creating masculine cards is "texture, texture, and more texture".  I love denim, twill, woodgrain, and anything distressed on a "guy" card.  So I used the denim pattern stamp and also cut some real denim with the Simply Scallops Large die.  You can never go wrong with metal on a guy card so I added lots of brads too.    

For the inside of the card, I spelled out my Happy Birthday To You message using the By The Numbers stamp set and die and the By The Letters die.  There's that woodgrain again on the number 2 - I love that you can customize the numbers this way (and will do double duty for customizing your letters too!).

I hope you'll hop over to the MFT blog to check out what the other incredibly talented MFT designers have cooked up for you!  I know it will be awesome!  Thanks for stopping by.
