Hey Friends! It's that time again! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time and this week Lynda's challenge is to create a masculine card. Considering Father's Day is right around the corner, this is a perfect challenge. I don't make masculine cards too often. . .actually rarely. . .as a matter of fact, only when Father's Day comes along or it's my husband's birthday.
Stop by Crazy 4 Challenges and check out all the awesome masculine cards the crazy gals created or stop by their individual blogs:

I dug through all of my Unity stamp sets and found one with a Father's Day sentiment. I also used the tree image because it's neutral but still pretty. It can be used for both male or female. I kept the card simple with very little bling or frilly stuff which is very difficult for me to do. It took all my will power to not put a flower or ribbon on the card. It was tough!
I just realized the word father is sort of missing the letter "f". . .ugggh!!! I'll need to fix that. Funny how I always notice these things only after I post the photo of the card on my blog. . .LOL!
I've had these alpha brads like . . .forever. I don't scrapbook often and I don't have the sufficient amount of vowels to create different words but luckily I had the alphabets to create the word "dad". I had to raise the letter "a" above the "d" because I didn't what the word too spread out over the top. Overall, the card is simple enough for a man. . .I think I'll have my daughter give this card to my husband.
Anyway, hope you'll play along with us this week! This will be a great time for you to make your Father's Day cards!! Okay, that's it. . .hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
